According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, occupations in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) field are expected to grow 8% by 2029 – but the supply of talent is shrinking. RU’s School of Natural and Behavioral Sciences offers majors that can prepare you to fill that demand. From computer information systems to biology, you can choose from a variety of complex and diverse career paths. No matter which path you choose, you’ll receive a strong foundation of comprehensive knowledge and critical thinking skills.

Courses place an emphasis on the Christian model of service.
