The faculty members of the Division of Sciences at Lindenwood University-Belleville seek to explore how we prepare students to make an impact on their society. Students in this division have an opportunity to prepare for a number of exciting careers such as nursing, medicine, dentistry and pharmacy.
The Division of Sciences offers BS and BA degrees in Biology, BS degree in Exercise Science, and a 2+2 Pre-Nursing articulation with Goldfarb School of Nursing to receive a BS degree in Nursing. The Biology degree is also our Pre-Medicine, Pre-Dentistry, Pre-Veterinary, and other Pre-Professional degrees.
We distinguish our division from our competitors through:
We recruit professors who bring both academic and professional achievement to the classroom. As a result, all of our full-time faculty members have a doctoral degree in specialty fields.
Extensive faculty-student interaction
We think the effectiveness of education is directly dependent on the quantity and quality of time our students spend with their professors. For that reason all of our classes are small to promote active student participation and all student advising is handled by full-time professors.
Early student contact with the business world
We want our students to develop meaningful contacts with the business leaders of the world before they graduate. We bring guest speakers to our classrooms and provide internship and mentorship opportunities.
Mission - The Division of Natural Sciences and Mathematics is committed to excellence in teaching, research, and services in biological sciences, chemistry, and mathematics. We encourage scholarship, open inquiry, and the free exchange of ideas within our departments, classrooms, and laboratories. We promote the application of knowledge beyond those settings. We seek to foster these principles in every one of our students, regardless of their academic background.
Vision - Our vision is to have well-educated undergraduate students who understand the interrelationship between science and the ethical, political, and philosophical universe in which he or she lives. Our division seeks to educate scientifically and mathematically literate members of society. We want our students to be able to apply the education they receive to their own careers and to use it as constructive members of society. We provide a component of education so that enables our graduates to contribute intellectually to the discussions and decision making that characterize our scientific and technological age. We strive to provide this component with the scientific and analytical tools needed to continue to develop in a world of rapid, technological change.
