Biology, Chemistry and Environmental Health Science

The Biology, Chemistry and Environmental Health Science Department includes majors in Biology, Chemistry, and Environmental Health Science.The overall goal of the Department is to provide a sound education for students in the natural sciences that will prepare them for immediate employment or for further studies.

Environmental Health Sciencebc esc an ehac accredited program

On May 8, 2004, the undergraduate Environmental Health Science Program at Benedict College was accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Environmental Health Science and Protection Programs (also known as Environmental Health Accreditation Council or EHAC).


Mathematics & Computer Science

The Mathematics and Computer Science Department provides courses, training and innovative learning opportunities leading to baccalaureate degrees in Mathematics, Teaching of Mathematics, Computer Science, and Computer Information Science. The curriculum offers a comprehensive educational experience for students in these areas in preparation for graduate studies and professional employment. In keeping with the philosophy and mission of Benedict College, the Department provides mathematics and computer technology courses for all majors as part of the general education studies. The Department's approach assures that the entire student body receives collegiate level skills in mathematics and computer science.

Physics and Engineering

The Physics and Engineering Department offers the following five programs of study:

The Physics program is designed to provide students with a fundamental understanding of the principles of physics and their applications and prepares them for careers in the public and private sectors or to pursue graduate study in physics or other related fields. The program offers courses in mechanics, thermal physics, modern physics, electricity and magnetism, electronics, etc.

The Computer Engineering program is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills in computer engineering and prepares them for careers in the public and private sectors or to pursue graduate study. The program offers courses in electronics, digital logic, software engineering, etc.

The Electrical Engineering program is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills in electrical engineering with concentration in communications and microelectronics and prepares them for careers in the public and private sectors or to pursue graduate study. The program offers courses in electrical circuits, electronics, communications, control systems, and etc.

The Physics/Engineering program is a dual degree program for students who are interested in engineering other than electrical and computer engineering. The cooperating schools in this program include Georgia Institute of Technology, Clemson University, South Carolina State University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and North Carolina A & T University. Under this program students attend Benedict College for approximately three years and the cooperating school for approximately two years. After successfully completing the specified academic requirements of the two institutions, students are qualified to receive a Bachelor of Science degree from Benedict College and Bachelor of Engineering degree from the cooperating school.

The Transportation Engineering and Logistics Studies (TELS) program is one of the newest degree programs (2010-2011 academic year) at Benedict College and was designed in collaboration with our governmental and corporate transportation partners. Students matriculating in this program will be prepared to address the demands of the 21st Century within the transportation industry. Students will receive individualized professional development and industry exposure through the Office of Transportation Programs. The program offers courses in transportation planning, traffic engineering, highway design, urban economics, transportation system environmental analysis, and etc.
