College of Science & Mathematics

The College of Science & Mathematics provides opportunities in biology, chemistry, computer information systems, environmental science, engineering, and mathematics.
David Slimmer

from the Dean

There are opportunities for you study a variety of subjects at almost any institution you choose.  But the education you receive from the College of Science & Mathematics at Lander University will give you an edge when you are applying for that first job, for graduate school or for professional school. The difference is the type of opportunities you will have, such as personal interaction with your faculty, and the hands-on experiences throughout your program, all in a safe, modern, and caring environment. We can place students in travel abroad programs, internships, and research projects, both during the school year and in the summer. Explore, examine, and find out “what-if” with our student centered professors that make teaching their top priority and who share in the excitement when students succeed.
