School of Science & Health

Study at a center of scientific innovation, where through a robust curriculum, unparalleled research opportunities and state-of-the-art facilities, students more than study scientific breakthroughs, they 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, as well as pre-professional programs in pre-dental, pre-medical and pre-veterinary tracks.

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 their 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.
