Undergraduate STEM Programs

The STEM curriculum is based on the interdisciplinary principles of science, technology, engineering and mathematics and their practical application in everyday life. Instead of these four disciplines being separate entities, they are integrated into a cohesive program supported by research, problem-solving, and critical thinking. Strong STEM students are analytical, curious, and technically-minded.

In general, STEM fields offer strong outcomes in many fields, whether a student chooses to pursue a graduate degree or jump into the job market post-graduation. Since many consider STEM careers to be the backbone of the US Economy, there are several scholarships available to qualifying students. The National Science Foundation S-STEM Grant awarded Albertus Magnus College more than $600,000 for a five-year S-STEM grant in spring 2017 (see below for more information).

STEM Degrees at Albertus

Albertus Magnus College offers a variety of STEM baccalaureate degree options:

Biology Chemistry Mathematics

Within my second course year in the biology program at Albertus, I started my internship at Yale-New Hospital in the OB-GYN department. I plan on going into med school after I graduate but prior to that, I am currently studying to get my CNA license, that way I am able to continue working while going to medical school.

Through the 'Scope

Scientific History of Albertus

The sciences at Albertus go back to the early days of our history. In 1927, Marcella O’Grady Boveri arrived at this fledgling college to establish a department of science.

Marcella's background was amazing for a woman of her time.

She was, in 1885, the first woman to graduate from Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a concentration in biology; she studied comparative zoology and embryology at Bryn Mawr; and by 1893 she had become a full professor at Vassar.

Three years later, she was admitted to study science at the University of Wurzburg in Germany, the first woman ever granted acceptance to the science program there. At Wurzburg, she studied with Theodor Boveri, director of the Zoological–Zootomical Institute and one of the world’s first cancer researchers. They married in 1897 and worked together on the chromosome theory of cancer until his death in 1915.

Marcella Boveri remained in Germany until 1926 when she returned to the United States for what was supposed to be just a brief visit: however, fortuitously for Albertus, she learned from a friend who was married to a former Yale University dean that the new liberal arts college in New Haven was looking for a woman of distinction to create and run its science department. When her contacts at Yale assured her that the resources of its Osborn Zoological Laboratory and Yale libraries would be available to her, she accepted the offer from Albertus. Marcella Boveri remained at Albertus until she retired in 1943; she died in October 1950.

Purposeful Vision & Direction

The Albertus STEM Degree Program Mission Statement

The mission of the Department of Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics is to build upon the College’s Liberal Arts focus to prepare students with the knowledge, skills, and judgment necessary to be responsible, able practitioners in their chosen fields. The majors are designed to prepare students for careers in education, research, museums, libraries, industry, government service, and scientific writing and illustration. The faculty works closely with students interested in pursuing professional or graduate study, helping them to prepare for entrance into both professional and graduate programs. Majors are advised individually about their choice of courses according to their special interests and abilities.
