Science matters across disciplines, whether you are a classics major utilizing Randolph’s 3-D printer to create special masks or an art major 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.
Over 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.
The Randolph Innovative Student Experience (RISE) program provides grants up to $2,000 for student-designed research projects - from purchasing scientific equipment to studying glaciers in Greenland.
The Step Up to Physical Science and Engineering (SUPER) scholarship program brings first-year students to campus for a 2-week intensive summer program before the start of fall classes.
The student-run organic garden is an on-campus laboratory for sustainable living techniques including permaculture, beekeeping, recycling, and organic farming.
The on-campus observatory houses a 14-inch telescope for astronomy research and hosts "Star Parties" for the local community to stargaze.
Randolph's Natural History and Archaeological Collections - which include specimens of various birds, mammals, insects, rocks and minerals - are a valuable learning resource for biology classes.
