College of Science & Mathematics
Welcome from the Dean
Welcome to the College of Science & Mathematics at Rowan University. As the Interim Dean of the College of Science & Mathematics, I can tell you that Rowan is on the move! It’s an exciting time here at Rowan with the addition of new academic and research programs.
While we grow, the College of Science & Mathematics is steadfast in our commitment to undergraduate education. We promote a student-centered approach to learning in a research-rich environment both inside and outside of the classroom during the academic year as well as in the summer. For the undergraduate student, you will find that our faculty is fully committed to creating a student-centered teaching and learning environment where undergraduate students are fully integrated into research experiences beyond the classroom. As a result, we prepare students to succeed in quality graduate/professional programs and careers in industry, research, medicine, education, government, and health professions.
The College of Science & Mathematics provides excellent undergraduate and graduate education in the sciences and mathematics. At the undergraduate level we have outstanding degree programs in Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, and Psychology, as well as interdisciplinary degree programs in Biochemistry, Biophysics, and Bioinformatics
Our graduate programs are highly focused in “demand” areas to serve South Jersey’s needs in technology and applied science fields in the disciplines of Psychology, Mathematics, Computer Science, Bioinformatics, Data Analytics, Pharmaceutical Science, and Nursing.
The degree programs offered through Rowan’s new School of Biomedical Science & Health Professions give our students the opportunity to enter health-related fields with a unique and innovative student experience preparing them to lead the future of South Jersey’s biomedical and health industry.
It’s an exciting time here at Rowan’s College of Science & Mathematics. I encourage you to learn more about each department and explore the interdisciplinary programs within the College.

Interim Dean, CSM and SBSHP
The College of Science and Mathematics aspires to be a leader in student-centered science and math higher education, recognized nationwide as one of the best among its peers. We aim to provide model preparation for continuing scholarship in students’ chosen careers in industry, research, education, health care, and public service. We are committed to creating experiences and opportunities to prepare our students to prosper in the global community through international partnerships and by increasing our global engagement.
The College of Science and Mathematics is dedicated to excellence in undergraduate and graduate education and research and increasing the number of students choosing these fields of study. We promote a student-centered approach to learning in a research-rich environment both inside and outside of the classroom. We are committed to providing our students with outstanding degree programs in basic and applied sciences and mathematics and preparing them to function in a multi-cultural and economically interdependent world. As a result, we are preparing students to succeed in quality graduate/professional programs and careers in industry, education, research, government and health professions.
The College of Science and Mathematics plays an essential role in educating non-science majors. For these majors, we will provide a sound grounding in the essentials of science and mathematics that will enable them to better understand the world in which they live and the role of science and scientific thinking in their society.
