Mission

The College of Science provides quality education with leading-edge research opportunities through interdisciplinary programs administered by seven departments and vibrant collaborations across campus and community.  Faculty bring their innovative research into the classroom, equipping students with advanced knowledge, skills and abilities, and preparing leaders for this generation and beyond.

Departments

The College of Science consists of seven academic departments:

  • Atmospheric Science (Earth System Science)
  • Biological Sciences
  • Chemistry
  • Computer Science
  • Mathematical Sciences
  • Physics
  • Space Science

Faculty in the College collaborate with several UAH research centers including the Center for Applied Optics, Earth System Science Center, Information Technology and Systems Center, Center for Microgravity and Materials Research, and the Center for Space Plasma and Aeronomic Research. The College benefits from its strategic location in the midst of high technology-oriented companies and federal organizations such as NASA and NOAA.  Unique opportunities are available for original research at the forefront of science and technology, including projects that are of direct interest to industry and academia.
