STEM careers start here

Lumberjacks make great mathematicians. And nurses. And geologists. And engineers. And chemists, veterinarians, dentists and teachers. 

At SFA, we take science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) seriously. And as a student in the College of Sciences and Mathematics, you’ll have access to world-class facilities and labs, hands-on learning, research opportunities and challenging, engaging courses.
