Dr. Houston Byrd, Chair
The mission of the Department of Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics is twofold. In science, students are provided with a thorough understanding of modern scientific concepts and theories, and practical experience in laboratory techniques. In mathematics, excellent current and relevant instruction that promotes an interest in mathematics for the welfare of society is emphasized. Such background, combined with the other components of a liberal arts education, will produce graduates prepared for a range of professional and postgraduate outcomes. This education is conducted in an affordable, “small college” public liberal arts setting.
No graduate degree is offered in this department. However, students pursuing a Master of Education in Secondary Education with a Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, or General Science concentration may take the courses below to fulfill the teaching field requirements. Students who have taken courses as an undergraduate may not receive graduate credit for those courses, with the exception of internships, directed readings, and special topics. For information on the M.Ed. program, refer to the appropriate section under Department of Teaching, Leadership, & Technology
