Graduate students conduct cutting-edge research and are trained to become scientific leaders in their chosen field. The College of Science offers post-baccalaureate degrees from all five departments: Applied and Computational Mathematics and Statistics, Biological Sciences, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Mathematics, and Physics.

In 2012, the college welcomed its inaugural class into the Integrated Biomedical Sciences program, a cross-departmental graduate program for research and training in a range of fields in the biomedical sciences. The cross-departmental nature of the program facilitates interdisciplinary studies in areas such as biophysics, bioinformatics, and chemical biology and permits translational studies such as the development and testing of new drugs and drug therapies.

International Doctoral Program in Science

Four world-class universities have partnered together to provide outstanding students an opportunity to pursue an International Ph.D. in Science: the University of Notre Dame (USA), Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (Italy), KU Leuven (Belgium), and Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (Chile). This program provides research opportunities in physics, chemistry, biology, environmental science, and mathematics through jointly supervised research projects across two of the partner universities. 

Master's Programs

There is a great need for talented scientists who can immediately apply their knowledge and skills in the workplace. The College of Science fulfills this need by offering three new, innovative one-year professional master's programs.
