Biological Sciences

A broad-based department whose interests encompass nearly every area of modern biology.
Chemistry and Chemical Biology Computer Science Earth and Environmental Sciences

Chemistry and Chemical Biology

Computer Science Earth and Environmental Sciences
Focuses on the traditional areas of chemistry—such as synthesis, molecular structure, and chemical reactions—as well as the rapidly developing frontiers of modern science. In addition to learning programming best practices, students are exposed to applied areas such as robotics, databases, programming language design, and operating systems. Includes the study of Earth’s component materials, the development of its structures and surface features, and the processes by which these change with time.
Information Technology and Web Science (ITWS) Mathematical  Sciences Physics, Applied Physics, and Astronomy

Information Technology
and Web Science (ITWS)

Mathematical
Sciences
Physics, Applied Physics,
and Astronomy
Combines knowledge of computing with managerial know-how to strategically solve current problems and to creatively research future ITWS solutions.

Trains individuals in mathematics, both as a subject in itself and as a discipline to aid in the development of other social and scientific fields.

Prepares students to contribute to new concepts and technologies through innovative teaching methods, and “hands-on” experience in modern laboratories.

Hirsch Observatory Walker Laboratory

Hirsch Observatory

Walker Laboratory Cogswell Laboratory
The Observatory is located atop the Jonsson-Rowland Science Center, and has been serving students, researchers, and the public since 1942. Housing state-of-the-art equipment along with advanced computer studio classrooms, the Laboratory facilitates interactive learning in chemistry and related fields. Equipped with modern, computer-controlled instruments providing hands-on experience with equipment similar to that found in industrial and research laboratories.
