Admit It! You hear liberal arts and you likely immediately think of history, economics, English and other humanities and social science disciplines. What you don’t usually think of, at least not right away, are the natural and hard sciences. Honestly, the liberal arts really should be called the liberal arts and sciences and William & Mary is a leading liberal arts and sciences university. We offer majors and minors across the natural sciences (Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Environmental Science, Geology, Kinesiology and Health Sciences, Math, Marine Science, Neuroscience, Physics) and we have advisory programs in pre-med, pre-pharmacy, pre-vet, pre-dental and engineering. In fact, biology and neuroscience are among the most popular majors on campus. Furthermore, over the course of the past decade, we’ve made a huge investment in our sciences and their research space through the construction of our Integrated Science Center (the first two phases of this project are complete and we broke ground on the third and final phase this past summer).
We’re excited now to be able to provide prospective students with more insight into our science programs, facilities and research opportunities through our STEM Tours. These special tours (which of course can be combined with our traditional information session and tour) are offered on Fridays at 1:00 pm beginning October 3 and running through November 21. Led by W&M science majors who are also involved in undergraduate research, these special visit options are a great way to see all that W&M has to offer to those interested in STEM fields.
As a leading liberal arts and sciences university, we welcome students interested in all the academic disciplines that a rich liberal arts and sciences curriculum can offer. Register today for any one of our campus visit options including our new STEM tours.
