A leader in science and math
The College of Sciences and Mathematics at Belmont University is dedicated solely to undergraduate instruction in the sciences. Our faculty excel at developing personal relationships with students and providing opportunities to engage hands-on in the process of science.
The College is housed in Belmont’s $76 million Janet Ayers Academic Center, which boasts modern classrooms, well-equipped teaching laboratories, a dedicated undergraduate research space, and state-of-the-art instrumentation facilities. Students benefit from instruction in a small classroom setting with faculty who are dedicated to teaching undergraduate science students and from opportunities to engage in one-on-one mentored undergraduate research.
Students typically conduct as least two semesters of research and have the opportunity to present their findings at national and regional scientific conferences as well as the annual Belmont Undergraduate Research Symposium. A variety of opportunities are offered for students to engage in research during the academic year and summer. In addition, students may participate in experiential learning activities through science- and math-related student organizations, internships, study abroad, and service learning.
