Majors

Applied Computing Technology

With a degree in ACT, you can be prepared to jump directly into an information technology career or start teaching computer science.

Biochemistry

Studying biochemistry empowers you to understand the foundations of life, get into the lab, and find your own big questions.

Biological Science

As a biological science major, you have the opportunity to ask big questions, solve complex problems, and find your passion.

Chemistry

As a chemistry major, you will learn from – and work with – some of the leading researchers in the field.

Computer Science

Computer Science is about finding ways to solve real-world problems through software. It is logic, math, languages – and teamwork.

Data Science

A degree in data science will empower you to jump into the growing and in-demand field, solving big, real-world problems in nearly any field.

Mathematics

A mathematics degree gives you a new understanding of the world – and a new way to make an impact in it.

Natural Sciences

A degree in natural sciences will empower you to understand the broad range of physical and mathematical sciences, becoming an expert teacher and translator. 

Neuroscience

A degree in neuroscience will not only teach you about the brain, but it will also train your brain in how to critically examine and answer complex questions.

Physics

A degree in physics is preparation for a dynamic career in a wide range of fields – from engineering to astronomy to nanotechnology to medicine. 

Psychology

As a psychology major, you will learn the science behind the reasons we think, act, and feel the way we do.

Statistics

A degree in statistics means that you are well prepared to help the world tackle some of the biggest challenges in science and business today.

Zoology

As a zoology major, you will be able to learn hands-on in the lab and in the field. You will get the hard-science background necessary to tackle issues of all scales.
