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, elementary education, engineering, exercise science, geology, industrial supervision, kinesiology, mathematics, mathematics teaching, physical education teaching, science teaching, special education, and sport management. Minor programs are available in most areas listed as majors and in other science-related areas, as noted elsewhere in this bulletin. The college also offers an Associate of Science degree program in Early Childhood Education, and Master of Science in Education program with concentrations in several areas including school administration and some content areas.  (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 course work 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 keeping with its philosophy that students learn best by doing, the college offers many courses as laboratory-intensive or field-based experiences.
