The Schmid College of Science and Technology prepares students for the complex world of the 21st 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 three schools, Computational Sciences, Earth and Environmental Sciences, and Health and Life 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 Undergraduate to Graduate Degree Programs (4+1 BS/MS Degrees)

4 + 1 BS Biochemistry and Molecular Biology; BS Biological Sciences; BS Chemistry; BS Computer Science; BS Mathematics; or BS Physics and Computational Science/MS Computational Sciences*

Students completing undergraduate science degrees are eligible to complete an additional year of study to obtain a MS computational 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 3 tracks, biology and biotechnology, applied mathematics, and earth system science. For specific criteria, refer to the Schmid College of Science and Technology website.

Bridge Program BS Health Science to Doctor of Physical Therapy

Health Science students are guaranteed early admission into Chapman University’s doctor of physical therapy (DPT) program if they meet the early admission criteria, and submit qualifying GRE scores to Chapman’s DPT program before the beginning of the senior year. Start of the DPT program is contingent upon the completion and documentation of required observation hours, the bestowal of the BS health science degree by the university, and a cumulative GPA at graduation of at least a 3.500. For specific criteria and deadlines, go to the Schmid College of Science and Technology website.

Bridge Program BS Health Science to Master of Food Science

Health Science students are guaranteed early admission into Chapman University’s MS program in food science if they meet the admission criteria, and submit qualifying GRE scores to Chapman’s MS food science program before the beginning of the senior year. Start of the MS food science program is contingent upon the completion of the BS health science degree, a cumulative GPA at graduation of at least a 3.00, and minimum GRE scores as specified for admission to the program. For specific criteria and deadlines, go to the Schmid College of Science and Technology website.

4 + 1 BS Health Science/MS Health and Strategic Communication*

Students interested in obtaining in-depth knowledge of health and risk communication theory, research, and applications may pursue a master’s degree in health communication. This 30-credit program is available to students upon completion of the BS health science degree. For specific criteria, refer to the Schmid College of Science and Technology website and link either to BS health science or MS health and strategic communication.

4 + 1 Integrated Science/MS 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 MS 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 website.

4 + 1 BS Mathematics; BS Chemistry; BS Environmental Science and Policy; or BS Physics and Computational Science/MS Hazards and Global and Environmental Change*

Students completing undergraduate science degrees are eligible to complete an additional year of study to obtain the MS hazards degree. This interdisciplinary degree provides the foundation for understanding the earth on local, regional, and global scales, emphasizing the dynamics of earth systems and their interactions. Students become adept at using remote sensing and other geo-technologies to detect changes related to hazards with hazards relevant to California. For specific eligibility criteria for this program, refer to the Schmid College of Science and Technology website.

4 + 1 BS Mathematics, BS Computer Science, BS Chemistry, or BS Physics and Computational Science/MS Economic Systems Design

Students completing undergraduate science degrees are eligible to complete an additional year of study to complete the MS Economic Science Systems. 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 website.

*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.
