Sciences & Math

Our science graduates ask how the world works. Through lab experiences, independent research and one-on-one mentoring from our faculty, graduates will be prepared for a variety of professions from theoretical to applied. Our graduates earn acceptance to medical school nearly 20% more often than the national average. They are also employed at many leading companies in the country, working to tackle challenges and problems facing the 21st century. Our graduates are well-equipped to be caring, ethical leaders in science, nursing, ecology, and health-related fields. 

Dean's Welcome

As the Dean of Science and Sustainability, I am pleased to welcome you to the Division of Natural Sciences, Nursing and Math at Aquinas College. This fall I am very happy to announce that classes are being held in our newly renovated and expanded Albertus Magnus Hall of Science. The building is a beautiful testament to the integrated, holistic approach to the sciences that you will discover as you study science here. For at a Catholic liberal arts college like Aquinas College, where we are dedicated to the pursuit of truth and the common good, the sciences hold a special place. We also take seriously our responsibility to care for creation, and so our campus Sustainability Initiative is now housed in the building.

Even in this unsettled time of COVID-19, we are moving forward in our mission to provide high quality science education. The spacious student spaces, classrooms and state-of-the-art teaching and research laboratories are welcoming and especially conducive to study and collaboration. So whether you are interested in studying Biology, Health Sciences, Chemistry, Geography, Environmental Studies, Nursing, Mathematics or Engineering, please come visit us and enjoy our new facility. We are committed to helping you realize your potential and make a difference in the world through your study of the sciences. I look forward to meeting you!
