The School of Science

At the IUPUI School of Science, we pride ourselves on our interdisciplinary approach, extensive undergraduate research opportunities, professional school placements, and service to our students. An education from the School of Science pays off: our students go on to top graduate programs, medical schools, and careers in academia, research, and the private sector

The School of Science at IUPUI offers a strong foundation in the modern life sciences, while our students reap the benefits of IUPUI's location and research diversity. With nearly half of IUPUI's 2009 class of freshmen science majors heralding from the top ten percent of their high school class, our students, from undergraduate to postdoctoral candidates, have much to offer the IUPUI campus and Indianapolis community.
