The Kakos School of Science offers challenging majors in natural science, technology and math. We are a vibrant community of student and faculty scholars working together to advance cutting-edge research, teaching and learning. We combine Lasallian values, a person-centered approach to education, and the scientific method in order to find innovative solutions to modern problems and challenges, building a more compassionate and just world. To develop well-rounded scientists who value compassion as highly as innovation, we will:
Build our community of scholars within the Kakos School of Science through the continued recruitment of diverse and outstanding faculty and students.
Develop high quality faculty and students by providing them with professional and career development opportunities.
Retain high quality faculty and students through enhanced and streamlined career pathway and student success efforts.
To these ends, each of our programs includes a core curriculum with courses in humanities, natural science, behavioral and social science. Class size is kept small, so students get individual attention from our expert faculty members.
Our undergraduate students conduct hands-on research alongside our dedicated and experienced faculty. Many of our students have the opportunity to publish their work in peer reviewed scientific journals and present their research findings at regional, national and international professional scientific conferences — giving students a competitive edge when entering the workforce or applying to graduate or professional programs.
