The Science Studies major allows you to enroll at Clarkson and take a foundation in mathematics and the sciences, then choose a major once you have learned more about what different disciplines involve.

Exciting new discoveries are revolutionizing every science field — from genetics to astrophysics, from biomolecular science breakthroughs to new insights into the electrochemistry of the human brain. For a student with strong skills in math and science and an inquiring mind, it's hard to know which area of science might be the most fun or the most fulfilling.

At Clarkson, you can choose from several science disciplines, including Biology, Biomolecular Science, Chemistry, Computer Science, Data Science, Physics and Psychology. We also offer several unique minors, concentrations and tracks to complement these programs, such as Pre-Health Sciences, Biomedical Science and Technology, Medicine and Healthcare and more.
