In the Department of Science and Mathematics, you’ll find classes that exemplify the comprehensive education you expect from Columbia. You’ll discover courses developed by scientists and mathematicians—many of whom are also practicing artists and musicians—that echo their scholarly interests and expand your understanding of the world.
You’ll also find four minors and an undergraduate major in Art and Materials Conservation, the only program of its kind in the Midwest, in which your junior year is spent living and working with professional art conservators in Florence, Italy. Outside the classroom, you’ll have opportunities to participate in community engagement efforts through the Science Institute, inspiring elementary, middle and high school students to learn, explore and rethink their understanding of the world.
