College of Arts & Sciences

The Sciences

The sciences evoke a yearning to observe, identify, experiment, investigate, and explain phenomena. If you choose to major in one of Lourdes University's science majors, you will join your fellow students in methodically researching and learning from scientists who came before you.

Internship program
Lourdes science majors will benefit from The Ohio Means Internships & Co-Ops program grant that will provide them with paid internships in their chosen field. Biohealth, food processing and research and development internships are available with a variety of companies including LexaMed, Sterling Laboratories, Center for Innovative Food Technology, NASA-Ohio Aerospace Institute, and Orbal Research, Inc.

The Liberal Arts

At Lourdes University, you will experience a truly personalized liberal arts education in the respectful and inspiring environment we provide. Our dedicated professors encourage you and your fellow students to achieve your degree while pursuing your career dreams and life goals. Grounded in the vision and ministry of the Sisters of St. Francis of Sylvania, all Lourdes arts and sciences degrees prepare you to make a difference in society and to change the world.

At Lourdes, we share the treasures of our intellectual tradition while preparing you for future success. Millennial students learn and process information differently. We help you become a 21st century professional who is committed to the common good, well-educated and able to engage individuals from many cultural settings and backgrounds.

In our global community, Lourdes graduates rely as much on their professional skills as they do on the creativity and critical thinking skills they gained from their liberal arts education. Join the many students and alumni who are today's role models and leaders in their chosen fields.
