The Pott College of Science, Engineering, and Education consists of seven academic departments: biology, chemistry, engineering; geology and physics, kinesiology and sport, mathematics, and teacher education. Through its departments, the college offers coursework leading to baccalaureate degrees with majors in the following areas: advanced manufacturing, biology, biochemistry, biophysics, chemistry, early childhood education, electrical engineering, elementary education, engineering, exercise science, geology, industrial supervision, kinesiology, manufacturing engineering, mechanical engineering, mathematics, mathematics teaching, physics, science teaching, special education, sport management, and statistics. Minor programs are available in most areas listed as majors and in other science-related areas. The college also offers a Doctor of Education, a Master of Science in Education with several curricular options, a Master of Science in Industrial Management, and a Master of Science in Sport Management (see the graduate bulletin for more information). All students majoring in college programs are assigned faculty advisors who assist with individual planning of each student's course of study.

Students who aspire to professional careers requiring additional training beyond the bachelor's degree usually major in biology, biochemistry, or chemistry, though other majors are possible. Pre-professional curricula (which are not themselves majors) are available in the following areas:

    Pre-Chiropractic Pre-Physical Therapy
    Pre-Dentistry Pre-Pharmacy
    Pre-Ecology Pre-Physician Assistant
    Pre-Forestry Pre-Podiatry
    Pre-Medical Technology Pre-Veterinary
    Pre-Medicine Pre-Wildlife Biology
    Pre-Optometry Pre-Zoology
    Pre-Osteopathy  

In addition to coursework for its majors and minors, the Pott College of Science, Engineering, and Education offers many courses in science and mathematics that students in all majors take to fulfill requirements of Core 39, as explained elsewhere in this bulletin. In keeping with its philosophy that students learn best by doing, the college offers many courses as laboratory-intensive or field-based experiences.
