The Schmid College of Science and Technology prepares students for the complex world of the twenty–first century by challenging students to think critically, to engage in research and to become involved in outreach through clubs and volunteer work. The college offers traditional and interdisciplinary degrees and programs designed for students who aspire to become tomorrow’s scientists, health care providers and leaders in fields related to science and technology.

Schmid College of Science and Technology is organized into two schools, Computational Sciences and Earth and Environmental Sciences. Each school offers undergraduate, graduate and interdisciplinary degrees supported by dynamic scholar–teachers and each school intentionally builds connections from the undergraduate to graduate programs so that students can move seamlessly from baccalaureate degrees to dynamic, innovative and highly regarded graduate programs. The Schmid College of Science and Technology invites you to join our dynamic community of scholars–teachers and students.

Schmid College of Science and Technology Integrated and Joint Degree Programs

4 + 1 Integrated Undergraduate/Master of Science Computational and Data Sciences*

Students completing undergraduate science degrees are eligible to complete an additional year of study to obtain a M.S. Computational and Data Sciences degree. Computational science is an interdisciplinary field in which computers and mathematics are used to model and simulate biological and physical processes found in the natural world. This graduate degree consists of four areas of study: bioinformatics and computational biology, analytics and applied mathematics, computational economics and earth system science. For specific criteria, refer to the Schmid College of Science and Technology Web site.

4 + 1 Integrated Undergraduate/Master of Science Economic Systems Design*

Students completing undergraduate science degrees are eligible to complete an additional year of study to complete the M.S. Economic Systems Design. Students study the design, development, testing and implementation of economic institutions and how they operate. The master’s degree prepares students to undertake the scientific process of understanding and developing systems of exchange and incentive. For specific eligibility criteria for this program, refer to the Economic Science Institute Web site.

4 + 1 Integrated Undergraduate/Master of Science Food Science*

Students completing undergraduate degrees in biochemistry and molecular biology, biological sciences, chemistry and health sciences are eligible to complete an additional year of study to obtain the M.S. Food Science degree. Food science is a multidisciplinary program that applies scientific concepts to the understanding of the properties of food. Food scientists apply scientific principles to the processing, packaging, preservation, storage, evaluation and utilization of food. For specific eligibility criteria for this program, refer to the Schmid College of Science and Technology Web site.

Chapman University and University of California, Irvine Joint Degree Program in Mathematics and Civil Engineering

The Chapman University/University of California, Irvine joint degree program in Mathematics and Civil Engineering combines the strengths of a top tier comprehensive university, nationally recognized for its commitment to excellence through research and innovative teaching, with those of a major research institution in a carefully designed dual bachelor's degree program. Students will complete their first three years of study in the personalized academic environment at Chapman and their last two years at UCI's Henry Samueli School of Engineering with the facilities and distinguished faculty of that renowned engineering program. While at Chapman, students will major in mathematics. The mathematics majors will complete UCI's civil engineering program. Students will receive two degrees: B.S. in Mathematics and B.S. in Civil Engineering.

*For this program listed above, graduate courses used to satisfy undergraduate degree requirements, may also satisfy up to 12 credits of graduate course work and may be double–counted towards both bachelor's and master's degrees.
