Become a Maverick Scientist
In the College of Science, our students are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible — for themselves and for the world. Maverick Scientists innovate, they discover and they learn. In the College of Science they acquire the knowledge and training they need to become leaders in whatever fields they enter. We have almost 4,000 students in six departments – Biology, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Earth & Environmental Sciences, Mathematics, Physics, and Psychology, in addition to health professions and a new multi-disciplinary program in Data Science.
Our students learn from world-class faculty and utilize state-of-the-art facilities while acquiring the knowledge and in-demand skills they need when they enter the workforce.
