Sciences at Fordham
Fordham science students have the opportunity to take courses with dedicated faculty who are leading experts in their discipline. Our small class sizes allow students to work closely with faculty and become involved in faculty-sponsored research projects. Fordham science and math students are competitive applicants for national and international opportunities such as National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates (NSF-REU) grants; Research Internships in Science and Engineering (DAAD RISE), and summer undergraduate research programs at other institutions. Graduates of our programs go on to study at top graduate and professional programs in the country or find employment after graduation.
