When we say “sciences,” we mean subjects that study aspects of the physical and natural world. Areas of study in the sciences include biology, math, animal behavior, computer science, chemistry, physics, public health and more.
Vibrant and inclusive, the sciences at F&M cross boundaries and weave subjects together in ways you didn’t know were possible.
As a future scientist, you’ll find we’re committed to your education by providing a place of discovery and forming a culture of collaboration along the path to scientific discovery. At F&M, you’ll learn about the scientific process, engage in critical thinking, take an active role both in and out of the classroom and collaborate with our world-class faculty, who are immersed in a wide variety of cutting-edge research and are eager to welcome you into their laboratories.
Subjects You Can Study
Field experience is a fundamental component of teaching and research in the sciences at F&M. You’ll have opportunities to immerse yourself in fieldwork as part of science courses, as well as collaborative and independent research, internships and even weeks- or weekend-long departmental field excursions with faculty and other students to places like Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the Grand Canyon, Florida Keys, and Death Valley.
