College of Science

In the College of Science, our students work alongside renowned faculty to examine and develop answers to critical issues in our local community and throughout the world.

 

Increasingly, we’re bringing together multiple fundamental sciences and propelling this transdisciplinary work with rapidly expanding computing capabilities. This convergence of science is fueled by data, focused on decisions.

 

Our traditional disciplines of Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Economics, Geosciences, Mathematics, Physics, Psychology, and Statistics provide the foundation of excellence for us to re-imagine science and education.

 

Our Academy of Integrated Science has blended these bedrock disciplines into programs that set the pace for science education across the country: Nanoscience and Nanomedicine, Systems Biology, Computational Modeling and Data Analytics, and others. Our School of Neuroscience offers studies not only in disorders of the brain, but also in the mind itself, including behavior, creativity, and decision making.

 

Giving to the College of Science makes a tremendous difference. With your support, the college can continue to grow as a destination where present and future science leaders discover, create, inspire, and inform.
