Science Matters

Di Bei '18 is developing new techniques for testing levels of different contaminants in environmental samples.

When you hear “liberal arts college,” you might not think science. But at Randolph College, Science Matters.

It matters across disciplines, whether you are a classics major utilizing Randolph’s 3-D printer to create special masks, or an art major who is taking advantage of your biology courses to create a series of pencil drawings. But for those planning to enter the sciences, a liberal arts degree from Randolph means you are prepared for whatever career you choose—from technology to medicine to chemistry.

Randolph students are often engaged in real, hands-on research, often co-publishing the results with their professors.

In fact, 100 percent of physics and engineering majors complete at least one internship or research experience by the time they graduate. During the last 10 years, 98 percent of Randolph’s physics and engineering majors had secured employment or graduate school placement by the time they graduated. And Randolph ranks in the top 15 percent nationally in terms of percentage of students who go on to earn a Ph.D.

Whether a student is pursuing pre-medicine, biology, engineering, or any of a number of science- related fields, Randolph’s strong, liberal arts curriculum creates the perfect foundation for a career in the sciences.
