Dean's message goes here.

Would you like to understand and explore an astonishing range of human knowledge?

From the principles of mathematical deduction, to the natural world, to the wonders of the universe, our faculty offer a wealth of knowledge, experience, and guidance to Norwich students. Through lecture, laboratory and clinical settings, we prepare students to pursue advanced study, perform successfully in their careers, and become responsible citizens in a democratic society.

Outside the traditional classroom and laboratory, COSM students engage in undergraduate research projects that enrich their educational experience, transform them into thoughtful, critical thinkers, and give them a competitive advantage after graduation. Our students frequently present their research at state, regional, and national conferences.

Experienced faculty advisors also provide one-on-one, personalized guidance to prepare students for professional careers in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, and many more. A teacher-education program is open to interested students.

  • “Take the opportunity to explore our programs and consider a science and mathematics major as an area of study. I encourage you to visit the campus and see the opportunities that are available. Our faculty and staff are friendly, accessible, and willing to answer questions.”
    Michael B. McGinnis, Ph.D. Dean, College of Science and Mathematics

    "I really enjoy taking students into the field and getting them working on original research projects in ecology. Research is a great way for them to start to understand science as a process, not just a list of facts to be memorized."
