Yes, nearly every liberal arts college will offer some majors in science disciplines and many offer interdisciplinary programs like Biochemistry, Neuroscience, and/or Environmental Studies. Along with the science, you get a well-rounded exposure to other disciplines. An interdisciplinary program that integrates liberal arts with the sciences can often give you an edge when finding a job after graduation.

Yes! Liberal arts and sciences colleges are very good at producing science researchers and doctors. Look at the course offerings, professors, and opportunities for deep research and intellectual engagement. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of liberal arts colleges with extraordinary science and even engineering programs. Just because you attend a liberal arts school doesn't mean you're getting a lesser scientific education than students at science and engineering institutions.
