I’ve experienced incredible opportunities, a close relationship with faculty and an education that will prepare me for the future I’ve always dreamed about.”Cade Mullins, biology and pre-med, Class of 2022
The School of Science, Technology and Mathematics in the Getty College of Arts & Sciences offers several majors.
The best way to prepare for your future career is through hands-on learning. That’s why we provide immersive experiences, including labs, undergraduate research, internships, field trips and much more.
Environmental and field biology majors: Explore and learn in natural laboratories, including our Metzger Nature Center, 70 acres of fields, woodlands and streams in the hilly unglaciated Allegheny Plateau, and our Wetlands Restoration Project, 300 acres just 12 miles from campus being restored to its original habitat.
Mathematic majors: Match wits against top mathematicians from around the world with ONU-SOLVE Problem. Our solutions to mathematical challenges have been recognized and published in national journals. Find out how number theory and cryptography are part of our advanced curriculum.
Forensic biology students: Investigate and solve mock crimes in the ONU Crime House, working alongside real law enforcement personnel.
Physics students: Explore the galaxy in our impressive ONU Observatory with a roll-off roof; three pier-mounted “goto” telescopes; and high-tech CCD cameras for astrophotography.
Construction management and manufacturing technology students: Get a head start with internships and co-ops that often lead to offers of full-time employment. Match skills against students from the Big 10 and Pac 12 at industry competitions. Tour companies, facilities and job sites across the U.S. and Germany.
Chemistry and biochemistry students: Receive hands-on training in our teaching and research labs. In your sophomore year, you’ll be trained on our nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer (NMR).
Technology education students: Obtain extensive experience in real classrooms.
All majors: Pursue your own independent research projects, working side-by-side with your professors in the lab or in the field. Attend and present research findings at professional conferences. Land competitive REUs (undergraduate summer research experiences) at major research institutions across the country.
