A center of innovation, where you more than study scientific breakthroughs, you create them

The School of Science & Health educates ethical, critically thinking scientists and health professionals in both the methods and value of scientific inquiry in solving important issues facing society today. The School is comprised of expansive, experientially driven programs in biology, chemistry & physics, mathematics and psychology & neuroscience.

The dedicated faculty of the School of Science & Health don’t just teach—they are scholars and practitioners whose work continuously informs and inspires the curriculum. They engage undergraduate students in nationally recognized research on campus as early as your first year, and forge connections with local partners and collaborators in the world-class medical centers and research institutions of the surrounding Longwood Medical and Academic Area.
