STEM Programs


Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Programs at GU

STEM programs are a collection of majors and emphases that lead to degrees and careers and advanced studies in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. At Greenville University, we offer the following STEM programs:

The GC Advantage:

At Greenville University, our professors understand the value of hands-on experience in the classroom, especially in STEM courses. Our small class sizes allow our students to have access to advanced instrumentation as early as their first year at GU. As early as their freshman year, GU STEM students put theory into practice using instruments like mass spectrometers, telescopes, cadaver labs usually reserved for upper division or graduate students at other institutions.

GU STEM students also have opportunities to contribute to faculty research and publications, gaining valuable, hands-on experience and academic exposure even as undergraduates while pursuing their degrees. In recent years, our students have been featured alongside faculty in several articles published in The Journal of Chemical Education, the world’s premier chemical education journal.

STEM students at GU are able to experience these opportunities in the context of a Christ-centered, transformative education. GU offers courses that invite students to integrate their faith into all parts of their college experience, from General Chemistry to Research & Writing.
