Our students are an integral part of the CSAM family of scholars, researchers, and inquisitive learners. CSAM students literally have the world at their fingertips with unlimited opportunities in research with renowned faculty and areas of study not found anywhere else.
We offer combined B.S./M.S. programs in Aquatic and Coastal Sciences, Biology, Chemistry, and Computer Science, and a B.S./Pharm.D program in biochemistry, biology, chemistry, and molecular biology. On the graduate level, a M.S. Chemistry/M.B.A. is available for dedicated and motivated students who want to obtain both degrees in a shorter period of time. We also were one of the first universities to offer an interdisciplinary degree in science informatics.
Perhaps you didn’t know the CSAM offers the only Ed.D. in mathematics education in the state, which prepares students for careers as mathematics educators, developers and leaders.
CSAM is deeply committed to our students’ success and is diligent in keeping pace academically in a rapidly changing world. Research is a key component to the student experience with opportunities that are diverse in nature and span the globe. Recognizing the enormous talent of our students, we offer the Science Honors Innovation Program (SHIP), which provides unparalleled opportunities for undergraduates to get involved in the research community, get a heads up on graduate school, and to compete for awards, fellowships and admissions to top Ph.D. programs.
Students have a wide choice of activities and programming including lectures, seminars, and research symposia. Each year, the Student Research Symposium showcases and shares with the community our students’ outstanding scholarship and research endeavors. Through PharmFest, we bring together the state’s top movers and shakers for a daylong discussion and exploration of current issues in the pharmaceutical industry.
CSAM-specific student clubs and organizations include the Biology Club, the Chemistry and Biochemistry Club, Gotta Be Green, the Minority Association of Pre-Health Students, the Physics Club, the North Jersey Astronomical Group, and Upsilon Si Epsilon (the honor society in the computing sciences.)
