Stimulating Educational Opportunities in Science and Health
Welcome to the Marist College School of Science. As you look through our webpages, you will find information about our undergraduate and graduate degree programs as well as the learning opportunities that are available to students in and out of the classroom.
At Marist, students learn in a student-centered, supportive environment in small classes housed in modern state-of-the-art facilities. These include the new Allied Health building, newly renovated Donnelly classroom and labs, as well as a new 28 foot vessel used for research and teaching on the Hudson River. Classes are taught by innovative staff with diverse fields of expertise, who are dedicated to the success of each student. However, a college education goes beyond the traditional classroom and laboratory, which is why our students also learn by doing in a variety of settings including internships, clinical rotations, high-quality research projects, and international experiences.
Developing relationships with mentors is known to be key to alumni satisfaction. This is an area where the School of Science excels. Faculty in the roles of academic advisors, course professors, research advisors, and internship coordinators, get to know our students very well. In addition, a college should be judged on its outcomes. We are proud to share our excellent reputation of placing students in the industry of their study, graduate schools, and health profession programs. We have graduates who are practicing physicians, healthcare professionals, college professors, and some hold top administrative and executive leadership positions within the science and healthcare industries. Several Marist science students have received national scholarships, which include the prestigious Fulbright and Goldwater Awards. We believe the great success of our students is attributed to the personal attention that is provided to each individual student.
Lastly, we encourage you to visit our beautiful campus on the majestic Hudson River. By meeting with you personally, we can not only show you the beauty of our campus and its surroundings, but also encourage you towards making your dreams become a reality through a Marist College School of Science educational experience.

In addition, we recognize and cherish our role in the general education of Marist undergraduate students through our responsibilities within the Core Professional 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.
