    1.- Introduction

    The College of Science was formed in 1965 when Texas Western College divided the Arts and Sciences College into the Colleges of Liberal Arts and Science. However, the college's academic departments have roots that start at the beginning of the institution. In 1913 the curriculum of the Texas State School of Mines and Metallurgy included physics and mining, engineering, mathematics, chemistry, geology, mineralogy, shop work, and drawing. From these roots the University of Texas at El Paso's College of Science has grown to over 80 faculty in five academic departments--Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Geological Sciences, Mathematical Sciences, and Physics--offering Bachelor of Science degree programs.

    The preparation of these students for graduate and professional schools and careers as scientists and teachers is the primary mission of the college. In addition, the college offers basic science and mathematics courses needed by students seeking other careers.

    Faculty of the College share a commitment to the idea that teaching and research are critically important in the education of students in science. The College is proud of the large number of undergraduates that participate in research laboratories. Although many of the faculty have achieved international reputations for their research, all, from the Dean of the college to the newest member of the faculty, have classroom teaching responsibilities.

    Reflecting the long connection between the arts and sciences, each academic department also offers a Bachelor of Arts degree program through the College of Liberal Arts. The Graduate Studies Catalog describes the Master of Science degree programs offered by each academic department and the Doctor of Philosophy degree programs offered in Biological Sciences and Geological Sciences. Doctor of Philosophy degrees in the interdisciplinary areas of Materials Science and Engineering and Environmental Science and Engineering are listed in the Interdisciplinary Studies section of the Graduate Studies Catalog.
