For more details, take a look at After Graduation
In the School of Sciences at CBU, we have many programs in the sciences and mathematics that can prepare you for graduate study and a career as a researcher or professional. Our programs can also take a more applications orientation and prepare you for a satisfying career that starts right after graduation. See our student success page for information about how well our graduates do, and see the featured alum section in our newsletters for examples.
There is no better example of the powerful learning environment than in CBU’s School of Sciences. We offer undergraduate science and math degrees to students interested in the health professions, the environment, research, computers and technology, and teaching licensure. In addition, we have a degree in Natural Science that can be used as a "design your own degree," and a wide selection of courses that can prepare you for many areas that are multidisciplinary in nature. All classes and labs are small and taught by faculty members in a personalized and hands-on setting with many resources available.
In addition to classroom learning, during your senior year you will participate in an internship and/or a mentored research project that pairs you with either a CBU faculty member or a researcher at a well-known institution. Past students have conducted significant research at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC), at the University of Memphis, and at the Memphis Zoo. Internships and research projects often lead to permanent employment with area hospitals, health-related organizations, corporations and industries, and public and private schools.
CBU’s School of Sciences is a perfect fit for students who are serious about immersing themselves in a rigorous but supportive program that pushes them to achieve.
