The College of Science and Mathematics contains the Departments of Biology, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Geology & Geography, Mathematical Science, and Physics, as well as the Department of Military Science. The College offers Master of Science programs in Biology, Mathematics, Applied Geography, and Applied Physical Science.

Students in the College of Science and Mathematics may also choose to pursue a pre-health professional program of study in Pre-Medicine, Pre-Dental Medicine, Pre-Veterinary Medicine, Pre-Pharmacy, Pre-Physician Assistant (PA), or Pre-Optometry. For students in any major, the Department of Military Science administers the Army ROTC program which leads to a commission as a second lieutenant at the time of graduation.

Vision

Within this decade, the College of Science and Mathematics will be recognized as a national leader in the development of innovative curricula and for its dedicated faculty who integrate distinguished scholarship with superior undergraduate and graduate education.

Mission

Advisement

Graduate students should meet with their research advisor or graduate program director for academic advisement each semester. While advisors provide information and guidance, final responsibility for completion of degree requirements rests with the student. 

Students may contact the Program Director for their Degree if they have questions about advising.
