College of Science

The College of Science (COS) believes in blending traditional science education with innovative programs and initiatives. As an R1 university—the highest designation for research universities—we help students conduct broad, interdisciplinary studies and specialized research with cutting-edge classroom technology and state-of-the-art laboratories. COS partners with specialty facilities in Northern Virginia to give students more opportunities to learn and conduct research, which, along with our connections to government agencies and industry partners, equips students with hands-on experience that leads to meaningful careers.
