The Natural Sciences and Mathematics Programs afford you the opportunity to pursue rigorous and exciting programs of study in Biology, Mathematics, and Environmental Science.
Working closely with faculty mentors in small focused classes, you'll enjoy hands-on learning in state-of-the art science and mathematics classrooms, laboratories, and research facilities, as well as in off campus research internships, field settings locally, regionally, and abroad, and in independent research projects. We'll prepare and mentor you for graduate study or employment in your chosen field of interest, while helping you sustain a lifelong passion for learning and a commitment to civic engagement.
Our diverse and talented core and adjunct faculty are skilled and creative in applying proven cutting edge exploration-based and student-focused teaching and learning practices in the classroom and in curriculum design. They'll work closely with you to develop teaching, mentoring, advising, and research relationships, and to create a culture of collaborative inquiry and critical exploration.
With modern and innovative, fully equipped classrooms, laboratories, and research facilities and a comfortable space for informal interaction, you'll have an extraordinary environment to learn and to grow.
Beyond our home base in Cambridge, the world is your classroom, from the local neighborhoods of Boston and Cambridge, to the diverse habitats of New England, and beyond. The ingredients for your success are 1) rigorous student-focused inquiry and active engagement in a broad array of science and math disciplines with links to the other disciplines and to real world problems, 2) small classroom and laboratory settings, with research, internship, and field experience, 3) talented faculty working together with excellent facilities, and 4) close advising and mentorship.
