College of Science & Mathematics
College of Science and Mathematics
Welcome to the Alumni page for the College of Science and Mathematics.
This past year, the University introduced a major focus on biomedical and health science initiatives, and accordingly in July, reorganized the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences (CLAS) into two separate and distinct colleges—Humanities & Social Sciences and Science & Mathematics and established a new School of Biomedical Sciences (SBS). These transitions will provide a unique opportunity to Rowan as well as to its science and technology based programs.
The College of Science and Mathematics consists of seven academic departments from which you are alumni – Biological Sciences, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, Nursing, Physics & Astronomy and Psychology. These departments continue to offer a wide variety of discipline-specific and interdisciplinary undergraduate and graduate degree programs ranging from pure Mathematics to Biochemistry, Applied Behavioral Analysis and Software Engineering.
As part of the historic higher education restructuring bill signed by Governor Christie in July, Rowan will become a comprehensive research university. This added distinction will catapult our new College’s mission to increase the University’s focus on research and teaching in sciences, mathematics, psychology as well as emerging biomedical fields. The development of a separate college for sciences and mathematics reflects Rowan University’s new emphasis on dramatically improving both scholarly work and instruction in diverse aspects of the pure and applied sciences.
Among the most unique features of our College are emphasis on undergraduate student research and development of innovative interdisciplinary graduate programs. Our faculty members are both internationally known scholars and dedicated teachers who bring their research findings to the classrooms thus exposing our students to cutting edge scholarship and applications. We aim to prepare highly trained specialists in a variety of fields of applied sciences and set a strong foundation for our students’ future graduate education.
The College is also expanding its graduate education. We are now approved for MS degree programs in Pharmaceutical Sciences, and Bioinformatics and also for Doctor of Psychology. These masters degree programs are the first graduate programs in natural sciences and our doctoral program is the first of its type outside the College of Education.
I believe that the College of Science and Mathematics together with the new School of Biomedical Sciences is the avant-garde of Rowan University. They lead this University towards becoming a premier research institution. As alumni, you have been a part of the past. I now welcome you to the exciting new future of your Alma Mater.
