Bennington students enter through doors marked “?” instead of “101.”
Astronomy. Biology. Chemistry. Computing. Earth Science. Mathematics. Physics.
The researcher, the policy student grappling with environmental problems, the artist who wants to understand the physics of light and color—all these may find themselves in the same classroom. Bennington science and mathematics students work closely with active professional scientists, have full access to well equipped research facilities and labs, and graduate as sophisticated researchers and perceptive critics.
As a science or math student at Bennington, you structure your studies around the questions that interest you most. Your practice and discussion of science takes place in the field, in the lab, and in small, rigorous seminars. In your first year, you are likely to find yourself designing and executing original research projects and working alongside faculty on their own research.
