School of Science & Engineering
In our increasingly complex world, the fields of science, technology, engineering and math — known colloquially as the STEM fields — have never been more important than they are now.
Our goal is to combine interdisciplinary study and knowledge acquisition with concrete experience. We want our graduates to explore, be inspired by and engage with the world. We seek to equip them with the information and analytical skills needed to understand and address change and challenges as they arise.
The School of Science and Engineering is vibrant and growing. It comprises nine academic departments and offers more than a dozen undergraduate majors and six master’s degrees.
Health sciences offers several areas of study — from nutritional, rehabilitative, exercise and health sciences to athletic training and public health. Our degree programs provide a solid grounding in science, math and engineering, preparing graduates for rewarding careers in the health and performance professions.
