The Division of Natural Sciences and Mathematics offers courses in biology, chemistry, bioinformatics, computer science, earth science, mathematics, pre-engineering, physics and natural sciences that are applicable to the preparation of elementary and secondary school teachers and to many other careers.
Bioinformatics is a discipline that applies Computer Science as a tool to solve biological problems. The Bioinformatics degree will be housed within the Computer Science program. The degree has been developed in collaboration with the Biology program and includes courses from both the current Computer Science degree and the Biology degree. Mathematics course work is also heavily represented in the proposed degree, as an understanding of statistics is necessary when working as a bioinformatics scientist. This is truly a unique and interdisciplinary degree and as such, it will not replace another degree. This degree is designed as a gateway for our students who will pursue graduate programs (MS and PhD) in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology.
