The College of Sciences embraces the traditional aims of a liberal arts education: a critical understanding of diverse cultures as expressed in their literature, art, ideas and values. The College also strives to foster analytic, interpretive, creative, and interpersonal abilities, as well as communication skills, both oral and written, which are fundamental to functioning effectively in the University and in the larger community. In providing educational foundations which enable students to develop, evaluate and express ideas critically, the College hopes to contribute to the formation of responsible citizens and competent professionals.
The College of Sciences is comprised of 10 departments: Agricultural Sciences, Art, Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Computer Science, Geography and Geology, Mathematics and Statistics, Music, Physics, and Theatre and Dance. It also houses the Preprofessional Studies Division.
