Departments

The College of Science is home to eight departments as well as several interdisciplinary programs. Our community of high-achieving students, powered by close interaction with faculty at the top of their fields, creates a solid foundation for new and continuing students. Research by both undergraduate and graduate students is paramount to our mission.

Interdisciplinary Programs

Although many people gain the knowledge they are searching for in a single scientific discipline, we know that as the world becomes more interconnected, not everyone’s interests and aspirations can be confined to one department. Thus, the College of Science offers or participates in several interdisciplinary programs that represent growing sectors of the scientific workforce.
