Welcome to the College of Science and Mathematics (CSAM) at Montclair State University. For over a century, we have built distinguished academic programs encompassing STEM fields. 

Our success is based on a simple educational philosophy: outstanding and dedicated faculty, engaged students and a commitment to academic and research excellence. Under the direction of our world class faculty, students have access to state-of-the-art facilities, technology and the opportunity to participate in cutting-edge research. Discovery-based courses and numerous experiential learning opportunities result in an optimal environment for our students to succeed as our next generation of STEM leaders. 

The College of Science and Mathematics provides students with applied study options: internships, independent research, and field study programs. Some departments offer clinical training or professional certificate programs, including teacher certification. Our faculty offer engaging experiences outside the classroom, where students build professional skills that can be utilized in business, education, government, and healthcare careers. Recruiters continue to seek out students who demonstrate skills in analysis, communication, problem solving, and teamwork.

CSAM is committed to the ongoing formation of academic/industry collaborations and partnerships to provide long-term economic benefits of New Jersey and beyond. We are home to several institutes, centers, and laboratories dedicated to advancing STEM research and education. These include the Clean Energy and Sustainability Analytics Center, the Microscopy and Microanalysis Research Laboratory, the New Jersey Center for Water Science and Technology, the PSEG Institute for Sustainability Studies, Professional Resources in Science and Mathematics, and the Sokol Institute for Pharmaceutical Life Sciences.
