Dean's Welcome

On behalf of the faculty and staff of the School of Computer, Mathematical and Natural Sciences (SCMNS), I welcome you to our family of professionals working together as "One Family, Growing Scientists."

The School offers eight bachelor's, three master's and two doctoral degrees within five academic departments: Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics and Physics. The eight bachelor's degrees are: Actuarial Science, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Engineering Physics, Mathematics, Medical Technology and Physics. The BS in Actuarial Science is the only such program in the State of Maryland and among the Nation's 115 HBCUs.

We provide the best training for our students to place in advanced degree programs and find employment. For this purpose, we have established partnerships to pre-admit students into medical schools at Boston University and George Washington University and a host of internship programs including those with high-tech companies in the west coast: Google, Facebook, Apple, Intel, etc. Uniquely located in the Baltimore-Washington area with a short distance to IT, health care, pharmaceutical and defense industries, as well as a host of federal agencies, the School has and continues to build partnerships for graduates to obtain employment with these entities.

With Morgan State University's strategic goal of Growing Morgan into a World-Class Doctoral Research University, our graduate degree programs will be put on a fast track for growth and advancement. These programs include three master's degrees: Bioinformatics, Mathematics and Science (with tracks in Biology, Chemistry and Physics), and our two interdisciplinary Doctoral degrees: Bioenvironmental Science and Industrial & Computational Mathematics. Our graduate programs are supported by world-class research scholars as shown below with some examples:

Biology: Dr. Gloria Hoffman, 187 Publications, h-Index 60
Biology: Dr. Farin Kamangar, 180 Publications, h-Index 54
Computer Science: Dr. Prabir Bhattacharya, 324 Publications, AAAS/IEEE/IAPR Fellow
Mathematics: Dr. Gaston N'Guerekata, >200 publications
Physics: Dr. Ramesh Budhani, 180 publications, APS Fellow

Please contact me or any of our departments if you are considering studying in any of the science disciplines and would like more information.
