School of Science

Learn more than numbers, facts and equations - learn to better understand yourself, our world and our universe...

At the Saint Mary’s School of Science you’ll develop a keen eye, a quick mind, a bold imagination, and a willingness to try, fail and try again. We believe that science is a human practice, shaped by human values and human history and conducted in service to humanity. We provide state-of-the-art laboratories and equipment, interdisciplinary classes, close faculty-student interaction and a global network of researchers and scholars. The School of Science offers the degree of Bachelor of Science in seven major fields.


You’ll begin with fundamental science principles and liberal arts courses, moving on to intensive lab work, collaborative research with faculty, mastery of current technology and special features like the 3+2 Engineering Program.

Research and Internships

You can spend 10 weeks in close collaboration with a faculty advisor on a self-designed research project, or join summer research programs at colleges and universities across the country. The Bay Area also has a wealth of internship opportunities at science and technology companies.
