Academics

IUPUI School of Science has more than 200 full-time faculty, scientists and staff dedicated to helping our students achieve their academic goals.

With hundreds of classes across 9 departments and programs, students have the incredible opportunity to earn either a Purdue University degree or an Indiana University degree at one location - IUPUI (degrees vary according to major).

 

Our proximity to prestigious international companies such as Eli Lilly and Company, Roche Diagnostics, and Dow AgroSciences, facilitates partnerships and collaborative research. Last year, almost half of IUPUI’s “Top 100” students hailed from the School of Science.

Science departments and programs

  • Department of Biology

    5 undergraduate degrees, 2 minors, 4 graduate degrees

    Success shapes your academic experience, but, in science especially, there will be trial and error. At IUPUI, you'l thrive in an environment that encourages you to ask the hard questions and be a part of real research that can affect the world. With abundant opportunities for undergraduate research, study abroad, specialized internships, and leadership experiences, you'll develop a broad spectrum of interdisciplinary skills to pursue your passion--be it in the lab or in the hospital.

  • Department of Chemistry & Chemical Biology

    3 undergraduate degrees, 1 minor, 2 graduate degrees

    As a chemistry major at IUPUI, you'll be a part of small classes and an interactive learning environment with challenging material and lab work. Each year the department graduates an average of 50 majors, which means you get personal attention as you join a tight-knit group of students.

  • Department of Computer & Information Science

    4 undergraduate degrees, 2 undergraduate certificates, 2 graduate degrees, 5 graduate certificates

    With a computer science degree from IUPUI, you'll be ready to design the future of medicine, business, engineering, the arts or whatever drives your passion. Applications of computer science range from biological and life sciences to software development --involving every aspect of life from homeland security to archiving cultural heritage.

  • Department of Earth Sciences

    6 undergraduate degrees, 2 minors, 2 graduate degrees

    Join an environment where students at all levels can explore, discover and learn through coursework and research. We're a small deparment, so, you'll get personal attention from faculty whose research ranges from climate change and global warming to water quality issues in central Indiana and geologic history of mountains in southern California.

  • Department of Mathematical Sciences

    5 undergraduate degrees, 1 minor, 6 graduate degrees

    As a math major at IUPUI, you'll be part of small classes and an interactive learning environment with challenging material and lab work. We're not a big department, so, you'll get personal attention as you join a tight-knit group of students, award-winning educators and world-famous researchers.

  • Department of Physics

    5 undergraduate degrees, 1 minor, 2 graduate degrees

    As a physics major at IUPUI, you'll be a part of small classes and an interactive learning environment with challenging material and lab work. We're not a big department, so, you'l get personal attention as you join a tight-knit group of students and faculty.

  • Department of Psychology

    2 undergraduate degrees, 2 minors, 4 graduate degrees

    As a psychology major at IUPUI, you'll join a community of students and faculty who are curious about the science behind behavior and mental processes. You'll learn from top researchers as you explore undergraduate courses and research experiences in clinical rehabilitation psychology, industrial/organizational psychology or the psychology of addictions

  • Neuroscience Program

    1 undergraduate degree, 1 minor, 1 graduate degree

    As a neuroscience student, you'll join a small program where opportunities in research abound, and small classes make for an interactive learning environment. As you study this explosive field, you'll dive into coursework grounded in biology, psychology, physics, chemistry, computer science and mathematical sciences, with the nervous system as a common focus.

  • Interdisciplinary Studies

    1 undergraduate degree

    You're a bit of a maverick: creative, motivated and ready to take on any challenge to study your unique interests. With the interdisciplinary studies program, you'll have the support and resources of the School of Science and the flexibility you need to create the science degree that's right for you.
