We also offer minors in many of the programs listed above.

Critical thinking skills and data-based decision making are stressed in the study of sciences. Our mission is not only to effectively convey the content of Mathematics and the Natural and Behavioral Sciences, but also to nurture a scientific attitude towards investigation and discovery. We consciously balance basic science with applied science and balance the study of the human being's mind with stewardship of the external environment. Our intent is to steep our students in productive use of the latest technology, while never overlooking the primacy of human thought, value, and culture.

The School of Sciences at Lindenwood University is located in Young Hall and contains several state-of-the-art high-tech classrooms. In these special classrooms, the students and professor in a class are able to search and study various Internet sites together and discuss their reactions and insights as they pursue the topic. At the same time, our science laboratories have been upgraded with the latest equipment and technology. These classroom facilities help boost the rate of learning in our science classes to its highest possible level.

Lindenwood University’s Department of Anthropology and Archaeological Research Program is receiving a grant from the Missouri Humanities Council to survey for the wreck site of Far West.

Digging up the Past - Archaeology Students Search for Historic Church Site

Every two years, Lindenwood’s Archaeology Department holds a summer field school so that its students can experience work in a real archaeology dig. The school two years ago was notable in that it succeeded in locating the site of a cabin that had been built and used by Louis Blanchette, the founder of St. Charles, Mo. This year, the group, headed by Anthropology Department Chair Steve Dasovich, sought to locate the site of St. Charles’ first church, which dates back to 1791.
