Science, Technology, and Mathematics Departments

Students working in the college greenhouse

In the fields of science, technology, and mathematics, students explore the physical basis of the natural sciences and associated technology, as well as the methods that scientists use to study physical and natural phenomena. Students have access to classroom and research laboratories that are filled with the cutting-edge technology and materials necessary to carry out the best science and to prepare for advanced study and professional work. Students become adept at understanding scientific and mathematical concepts and applying them in real-world contexts. They learn the frustration and the exhilaration that are part of the research process, lessons that prepare them well for graduate study or careers in industry.
