Science – Program Features
Project Based Learning
The opportunity to select a science minor and a second, non-science minor allows students a wide range of undergraduate studies that can be tailored to a student’s specific interests, talents and career goals.
With a second minor, science graduates pursue careers as science writers (English minor), pharmaceutical sales (Business Administration minor), science policy (Political Science minor).
Maryville is proud to work with numerous corporate and civic organizations in St. Louis and beyond through partnerships created in support of our academic programs and student opportunities. The list of the University's partners is long, impressive, and ever expanding: Rawlings, Mercy, St. Louis Public Schools, Parkway School District, Edward Jones, Northwestern Mutual, RGA, St. Louis Cardinals, St. Louis Blues, and Maritz, just to name a few.
Our partners provide students with opportunities to experience hands-on involvement in real-world projects, requiring them to hone market-ready skills even before they graduate. Students also experience a variety of work environments and develop a network of industry contacts through these partnerships, so Maryville graduates often have a competitive edge in the job market. In fact, many of our partners provide valuable internships—which can lead to full-time jobs with the firm or agency.
