Science aims to understand the underlying principles and laws which govern all aspects of nature; from the origins of the universe and the evolution of life to the workings of the brain and the constituents of space, time and matter. In Science knowledge is derived by the use of formal reasoning, modeling and simulation, but always in close connection to observation and experimentation.
The Science Department covers the following disciplines: mathematics, physics, chemistry, earth and environmental sciences, life science, cognitive neuroscience, and medical science.
Studying science at UCU carries a number of advantages. Students benefit from the excellent Utrecht University researchers who teach at UCU. The Liberal Arts & Sciences approach guarantees, at the same time, combinations of disciplines that are unique, such as mathematics & philosophy, biology & law, evolution & religion, biotechnology & developmental studies and modern & traditional medicine.
UCU graduates have entered high-profile Master’s and PhD science programs, in the Netherlands and abroad. Aspiring doctors will find that a Bachelor of Science from UCU is an excellent asset for a career in medicine.
