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. We will provide the best training in order to place our graduates 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/Co-OP programs. With the unique location of Morgan State University, SCMNS has built partnerships for graduates to obtain employment in health, pharmaceutical and technological industries, as well as a long list of governmental agencies. Our School's eight bachelor's degrees are in Actuarial Science, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Engineering Physics, Mathematics, Medical Technology and Physics. The Bachelor of Science degree in Actuarial Science is the only program of its kind in the State of Maryland and among the Nation's HBCUs.

With Morgan State University's strategic goal of Growing Morgan into 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 in Bioinformatics, Mathematics and Science (with concentrations in Biology, Chemistry and Physics), and our two interdisciplinary Doctoral degrees in Bioenvironmental Science and Industrial & Computational Mathematics. Our graduate programs are supported by world-class research scholars, shown below with one example each of the five academic Departments:

Biology: Dr. Gloria Hoffman, 187 Publications, h-Index 60
Chemistry: Dr. Kadir Aslan, Chemistry, 150 Publications, h-Index 43
Computer Science: Dr. Prabir Bhattacharya, 324 Publications, AAAS/IEEE/IAPR Fellow
Mathematics: Dr. Gaston N'Guerekata, 200 publications
Physics: Dr. Conrad Williams, ONR/NSF Program Director

Please contact me or any of our departments if you are considering studying at SCMNS and would like more information.
