Administrative history

The Science College provides a unique forum where students interested in the sciences can prepare for a life of research, teaching or any challenging pursuit or profession in the sciences. The Science College espouses the following well-defined, distinct, and important concepts of science education: student participation in laboratory research activities from the first year on and a curriculum emphasizing cross-disciplinary thinking as well as intensive student-faculty and student-student interaction. Founded in 1979, the college is one of the five colleges created by Concordia at the Faculty of Arts and Science. Biology professor Elaine Newman became the first Principal and the first students enrolled in September 1980. To promote the new college, the Science College offered public lectures held at least twice a year, inviting prominent scientists to give a lecture for the scientifically interested public.
The College has several characteristics distinguishing it from a regular BSc program. In addition to the required courses in their fields, all students must take several courses in such topics as physics, biology, chemistry, geology or math, and a six-credit course called Historical, Philosophical and Social Aspects of Science.
In 2019, the Science College introduced the Lillian Jackson Bursary that will provide relief to Science College students demonstrating financial need.
