College of Science & Mathematics

Welcome to the new College of Science & Mathematics

Date: July 1, 2012


Welcome to the College of Science and Mathematics (CSM)

The College of Science and Mathematics consists of seven academic departments – Biological Sciences, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, Nursing, Physics & Astronomy and Psychology. These departments offer a wide variety of discipline-specific and interdisciplinary undergraduate and graduate degree programs ranging from pure Mathematics to Bioinformatics, Pharmaceutical Science, Applied Behavioral Analysis and Software Engineering.

The mission of the CSM is to increase Rowan 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.

CSM and the new School of Biomedical Sciences (SBS) are also perfectly positioned to develop research and teaching collaboration with the Cooper Medical School at Rowan University. This connection gives our students the unique opportunity to enter health-related fields through a direct exposure to a medical institution.

I believe that the College of Science and Mathematics together with the School of Biomedical Sciences is the avant-garde of Rowan University. They lead this University towards becoming a premier research institution.

All my best,
