Stimulating Educational Opportunities in Research and Practice
Welcome to the School of Science at Marist College. At Marist, we believe our alumni's successes are based on providing them with the skills to solve problems rather than simply recalling an answer. As to quote Carl Sagan "Science is a way of thinking much more than it is a body of knowledge."
Throughout our website, you will find stimulating educational opportunities offered by our diverse and vibrant academic programs, which provide opportunities for students to take courses across the globe and to conduct research in the laboratory as well as the field". These experiences are specifically designed to either place students directly into the workforce or for graduate studies in health, medicine, as well as other scientific fields such as biology, chemistry and environment science. We are committed to enhancing our existing curricula and the development of new programs that will continue to give our future alumni a competitive edge in the global market. So we encourage you to explore our virtual glimpse of the School's academic programs in Athletic Training, Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science and Medical Technology.
I and the entire School of Science encourage you to come and visit our campus and welcome you to contact us with any questions as we would be happy to discuss your academic future.

Dean, School of Science
The mission of the School of Science is to encourage intellectual development in the natural, physical, and health sciences and to instill an inquisitive nature, lifelong quest for knowledge and responsibility to be ethical and productive members of our global community.
The School of Science seeks to provide the ability to wed science-based principles to practice through the application of content knowledge, scientific literacy and research. The School also aims to provide students with the knowledge and skills required for placement in graduate school or professional positions.
In addition, we recognize and cherish our role in the general education of Marist undergraduate students through our responsibilities within the Core Liberal Studies program. It is our expectation that all students will be able to think critically, listen thoughtfully, and make informed decisions in matters that have a scientific dimension.
