The College of Sciences is relatively new. It was created by a separation from the College of Sciences and Liberal Studies. The new College was established in anticipation of the growing importance of interdisciplinary scientific technology-and its establishment has proven to be both wise and timely.

The College of Sciences comprises seven schools--Biology, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Mathematics, Physics, and Psychology, each offering both undergraduate (B.S.) and graduate degrees (M.S. and Ph.D) and Applied Physiology, offering an undergraduate certificate and a Professional Masters program.

The Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics, and Computing (CEISMC), which works with K-12 schools and teachers in the state of Georgia to improve science and mathematics education, is also a unit of the College.
