Monmouth University’s undergraduate science and technology degree programs offer a variety of distinctive opportunities for students who are interested in thinking big as they develop into tomorrow’s in-demand professionals. Small class sizes, highly qualified faculty, and excellent on-campus resources are essential features of all of the University’s science programs.
Students learn best by way of an active teaching model, and the School of Science offers an intellectually stimulating environment in a physical facility that encourages lively communication between students and faculty, making for an inviting and a productive way to learn. We are proud of our commitment to provide modern facilities for up-to-date science education. Major construction for new teaching and laboratory spaces on campus is underway. Since 2013, the University has been upgrading facilities to better support student-faculty collaborative research projects.
While at Monmouth School of Science, students take leading roles in hands-on laboratory research and in professional, active-learning field experiences, making them excellent candidates for potential employers, graduate school, or medical school. Students in the Marjorie K. Unterberg School of Nursing and Health Studies may focus on promoting health and preventing disease in diverse medical, community, and private and corporate settings.
