Grapple with the big problems and bold possibilities of science. We challenge our students to become intentional learners and integrative thinkers—in a word, scientists. From classroom to lab bench to field station, a thirst for discovery drives everything we do. Because, as scientists, what we don’t know—the mystery molecule, the elusive equation—is what compels us.
Exploring mysteries, positing answers, reporting results—students fully engage in a scientific community.
It all starts with a question—75% of our students conduct original research into the enigmas of science.
Our faculty members are world-class teacher-scholars, passionate about mentoring young scientists.
Averaging 20 students, our small classes support meaningful collaboration among faculty and students.
Gain global perspectives in faculty-led courses, exploring science from Germany to the Galapagos Islands.
Collaborate across disciplines—inside and outside of science—to solve real science-based problems.
Not sure about graduate study? A TCNJ degree prepares you for both the workplace and an advanced degree.
Multimillion-dollar labs rival those of big research universities—and we give you the keys (literally).
Graduate as an experienced scientist, ready to compete nationally for the best careers and grad schools.
