Division of Science & Mathematics

The Division of Science & Mathematics strives to produce students capable of successful graduate study and careers in private industry or government.
Students in this program may pursue a B.S. in biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, mathematics, physics, physics (applied), psychology or telecommunications. Minors are available in biology, environmental studies, mathematics, neuroscience, physics, psychology, public health sciences and telecommunications.

A few items of note about the Science & Mathematics program:

  • The dual-degree engineering program allows students to obtain both a liberal arts education and a professional engineering education. It is conducted in association with a number of outstanding engineering institutions throughout the United States.
  • Mathematics majors are encouraged to minor in an area in which mathematics is an essential tool, such as the physical, social, management, biological, computer or engineering sciences.
  • Students majoring in any academic subject may minor in environmental studies, which aims to provide an understanding of the multidimensional nature of environmental problems.

The Science & Mathematics division also seeks to promote the professional development of its faculty members through regular meetings to discuss issues of mutual interest.

Department of Biology

Provide students with a fundamental knowledge of Biology. Prepare students for and assist them in entering graduate and professional school, and the workforce.

Department of Chemistry

In harmony with this historical thrust and the overall objectives of the College, the primary objective of the Chemistry Department is to develop the ability and desire of students to apply the techniques of sustained and objective critical analysis to the solution of problems. The department strives to prepare its majors with a thorough and rigorous background in undergraduate studies in chemistry, so they may, without handicap, pursue graduate studies in chemistry and related sciences or begin careers as professional chemists.

Department of Computer Science

The primary goal of the Computer Science Program at Morehouse is to prepare the student for graduate studies in computer science and entry into the workforce as a computer professional at the highest level possible.

Department of Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics strives to produce students capable of successful graduate work or careers in private industry or government.

Department of Physics and Dual-Degree Engineering Program

The Department of Physics offers a spectrum of courses reflective of both the integral character of physics in the liberal arts curriculum and its essential role in engineering and technology, and which recognize that the discipline of physics is fundamental to the understanding of all natural phenomena. The Dual Degree Engineering Program provides an opportunity to obtain both a liberal arts education and a professional engineering education. The program is conducted in association with a number of outstanding engineering institutions.

Department of Psychology

The objectives of the Morehouse College Psychology Department are to equip students with a critical understanding of the basic theories of behavior; to provide a strong foundation in the fundamental skills necessary for an understanding of the basic principles of research in the behavioral sciences; to prepare students, academically and personally, for advanced graduate and professional training in psychology, business, law, medicine and related fields
