School of Arts & Sciences
The School of Arts & Sciences prepares students for careers in fields that range from medicine and environmental science, to law and global leadership; from psychology and social work, to graphic/video game design and creative writing (e.g., writing ad copy or young adult novels). The School of Arts & Sciences also prepares future teachers and business executives by providing training in writing, speaking, data analysis, and mathematics to all our undergraduates, and by providing content training for future educators. In fact, many private corporations prefer their future employees to major in Arts & Sciences because this background focuses primarily on analytic and communication skills that are essential in the public and private sector. Whether their goals are to build a successful career, a better world or both, we have programs that can help them achieve that goal. No matter whether their major is Biology, Communications, History or any of our twenty-five degree programs, they will work closely with nationally recognized experts in the classroom, in the lab and in the field, and forge relationships that will help them transition into graduate school or launch careers.

Division of Math and Sciences
Studying Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Earth & Marine Sciences, Environmental Science, or Math affords the student the unique opportunities to interact closely with our esteemed faculty. In the classroom, faculty use imaginative and innovative approaches that not only communicate critical information, but also make the scientific topics come alive for the student. In the research laboratories, nationally renowned scientists at Dowling allow students to be involved in exciting, ground-breaking research.
The division of Math and Sciences serves as a gateway into the world of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), lucrative professions that are constantly changing the world. Whether the students wish to become involved in medicine and human health, address issues of environmental sustainability, or learn to write the computer code that runs the world, their path begins with one of our math or science programs.
