Biology:
Ask the big questions about the nature and diversity of life — from
viruses to zebrafish, from cancer cells to cone snails. Open the door to diverse
careers — health, medicine, biotechnology and the environment.
Biomolecular Science:
Work at the forefront of the chemical and biological
interface — understand the molecular basis of drug design, develop the next
generation of biopolymers, build a biosensor.
Chemistry:
Explore the fundamental properties of all matter. Make new
materials, polymers and chemical processes. Analyze contaminants. Apply
your knowledge in fields as diverse as metals, pharmaceuticals, medicine,
environmental protection, defense and law enforcement.
Communication:
Understand how people communicate and work in society.
Use and make new media. Create computer graphics, Web environments,
digital animations and video along with traditional spoken and written media.
Computer Science:
Harness the power of systems and software. Create the
tools that drive enterprise, computer systems and technology: programming
languages, artificial intelligence, robotics and virtual reality.
Digital Arts & Sciences:
Put your left and right brain together. From the
big screen to the latest video game to consumer product testing, this major
prepares students to combine new media, graphic arts and computer sciences
focusing on scientific visualization, graphics and digital animation.

History:
Be a detective. Analyze and evaluate evidence. Put world events in
perspective. Investigate what makes humans tick: society, culture, politics,
economy.
Humanities:
Learn about the big issues like values and the power of ideas.
Study fiction and drama and their roles in human lives. Pursue a true liberal
arts education and enrich your experience with external fields.
Liberal Studies:
Design a rigorous, flexible program that explores interests
and issues across humanities and social sciences. Prepare yourself with the
fundamentals to demonstrate creativity in analyzing problems, expertise in
technology and an understanding of diverse perspectives.
Mathematics:
Probe the methods and concepts critical to understanding
the natural and technological world — dynamic systems, computational
mathematics and statistics. Become fluent in the world’s most widely used
language — mathematics.
Physics:
Be the foundation for a technological world. Combine a passion
for the abstract concepts of mathematics and philosophy with the applied
aspects of instrumentation and engineering.
We specialize in spanning boundaries across traditional disciplines. There are tremendous advantages to learning science,
mathematics and technology in a program that also has a strong liberal arts curriculum. By the same token, our liberal arts grads
benefit from ubiquitous access to technology and being part of a comprehensive research university. In a nutshell, the unique
blend of arts and sciences at Clarkson enhances the ability of all students to interact, to understand and to contribute.
Clarkson’s School of Arts & Sciences, with approximately 88 faculty and 750 undergraduate students, offers more than a dozen
programs leading to bachelor of science degrees, including:
American Studies:
Study American society and culture through history, politics and literature. Look at the rhetoric and reality of
American ideals.
Applied Mathematics & Statistics:
See inside the numbers and data. Build your skills in analysis to understand your world.
Use computation, concepts and creativity on new problems, new solutions and real-world applications.
Aretê (double major in business and liberal arts):
Fuse practical business preparation with a grounding in the humanities and
social sciences. Gain the leadership skills and human and cultural insights needed for success in today’s multinational businesses.
