College of Science & Mathematics

Science & Mathematics

The College of Science and Mathematics provides a range of opportunities for students to study in the areas of biology, chemistry, computer information systems, environmental science, engineering, mathematics and nursing. The goal of each program is to provide professional training at the undergraduate level to serve as a foundation for each student to pursue their interests. For some, this means a career in science, computer information systems, mathematics or nursing. For others, it is the preparation to go on to graduate level work in pursuit of a higher degree, or the preparation to enter a medical school for a career in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, physical therapy or veterinary medicine. Please explore the website to gain more information about each department and program in the college. 


Learning Spaces

Housed in three campus buildings, the College of Science and Mathematics offers state-of-the-art facilities where biology students explore their curiosity about the complex web of organisms that thrive in ecosystems and research the causes of modern diseases and their cures; mathematics and computing students work to unravel mathematical or technological mysteries; chemistry and environmental students study how molecules and elements interact, as well as explore energy alternatives to protect the environment; and nursing students learn to comfort the ailing while going beyond simply treating the sick.

College Facilities Include:

  • a nursing simulation lab, featuring six simulation mannequins
  • tech-infused classrooms, labs and lecture halls
  • a fully functional greenhouse
  • chemistry and biology labs, with state-of-the-art equipment
