College of Science and Mathematics
Farooq Khan, Interim Dean
The College of Science and Mathematics is charged with the responsibility of providing instruction to students majoring in traditional sciences and mathematics disciplines, as well as providing the general education component of all the non-science and mathematics programs. It does so with the realization that in order to prepare students to face the ever-changing, complex society in which we live, it is necessary to do more than teach them a number of facts and train them in a variety of skills. This is done by offering a challenging curriculum that exposes students to innovative teaching and hands-on experiences.
The College of Science and Mathematics offers degrees in all traditional areas of science and mathematics, including biology, chemistry, computer science, geology, mathematics, and physics. Sequences of quality academic courses are provided to prepare students for graduate studies in the discipline and the school of their choice, as well as for a variety of scientific careers, including elementary and secondary school teaching. In addition, it is believed that an educated person in modern society requires a basic understanding of science and mathematics as well as computational skills. Courses designed to accommodate this need are incorporated in all major programs and are available to students desiring a liberal experience in the sciences
