Growing through research at the College of Science and Mathematics.

Research allows students to gain knowledge above and beyond textbooks and lectures. The CSM students within each of our departments - biological sciences, mathematics, chemistry, and physics - are inspired to identify problems affecting our world today and find creative ways to solve them. Students will pursue their interests, push boundaries, take on challenges, and develop creative problem-solving skills.

Research allows students to develop a broader understanding of the world around them, and they will learn from experienced faculty mentors who engage students in faculty-initiated research projects. Ultimately, students will design and develop their own research projects as they progress through their degrees.
