Advance your Career with a Degree in Science
SDSU’s College of Sciences is the region’s largest center for science education and research. Comprising eight departments and various specialties, our College offers bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees, as well as curricula for pre-professional students in medicine, veterinary medicine, and dentistry. Our coursework is enhanced by research centers that provide our students with real-world experience and seminars given by notable leaders in the field. We also maintain off-campus sites at the Mt. Laguna Observatory, Coastal Waters Laboratory, and nearly 9,000 acres comprising four biological sciences research stations. Our faculty remain leaders in their disciplines through their research, enabling our students to benefit from both practical classroom instruction, as well as hands-on laboratory work with our professors.
