The STEM department’s instructional philosophy of experiential learning allows students at every level to develop critical thinking skills while providing broad, deep and state-of-the-art training in its disciplines.
Small class sizes and numerous opportunities for hands-on learning are key features of the Landmark College STEM department.
A broad array of courses in the natural sciences, computer sciences, and mathematics are at the heart of the STEM department. All of these courses focus on both a comprehension and application of abstract concepts, fluency in technical terminology, which are emphasized through inquiry-based learning methods.
A.S. and B.S. in Life Science
Every student in life science becomes a member of our community of scholars, working closely together with faculty and peers to advance the field of biology and develop a lifelong interest in life science.
Both life science degrees play to the strengths of our student population by embedding practical science skills throughout the curriculum.
Unlike the traditional approach of separating lecture and lab sections of courses, Landmark College lab course integrate those experiences in a modular approach that provides opportunities for students to construct knowledge for themselves.

A.S. and B.S. in Computer Science
Both computer science degrees have an emphasis on programming and software engineering.
The A.S. degree provides a general introduction to computer science, starting out with programming in Java.
The B.S. degree, designed using the ACM Guidelines for Computing Programs, provides students with the skill set necessary to work within a broad area of computer science, including software engineering, networking, Internet programming, mobile application programming, and web science.
