The College of Science is comprised of three academic units -- the Division of Science and Environmental Policy, the School of Computing and Design, and the Mathematics & Statistics Department. Within these academic units, students' learning experiences are organized thematically and topically with an emphasis on finding workable solutions to important local, regional, national, and global problems. Through their studies, students gain the knowledge and practical skills necessary to adapt and succeed while making useful contributions in a rapidly changing world.
