The College of Science Difference

Passionate Faculty

Our seven majors make scientific research and discovery a real practice. In the College of Science, you’ll find faculty who are passionate about sharing knowledge, bring real-world accomplishments to the classroom and who can help direct your course of study, opening a world of career possibilities. You won’t be lost in a sea of students, either: Clemson’s student-to-faculty ratio is 16 to 1, with 85 percent of classes having fewer than 50 students.

Global Experiences

Global experiences offer high-impact, transformative opportunities that strengthen students, build global citizens and provide context to facts. Faculty-directed programs allow students to perform coursework under the direction of a Clemson faculty member in another country; exchange programs allow students to study abroad at a partner school; third-party programs let students identify and build their own unique experiences.

Emphasis on Research

The emphasis on hands-on research is apparent through expansive opportunities and investments in facilities and equipment, including cutting-edge tools and laboratories. This creates an engaging academic environment that encourages student learning and discovery. A vast array of scientific experiments is conducted, each one contributing to Clemson’s national ranking as a top-tier research institution.

Student Experiences

Coursework is only the start of how you can engage in the College of Science. Getting involved in activities outside the classroom does more than build your resume. Whether you want to play disc golf, study abroad, join a Greek organization, help build a Habitat for Humanity house — or do all of those things and more. At Clemson, there’s a place for you.
