Division Of Science

The Division of Science at City College has a proud legacy and a proud future.  Nine Nobel Laureates studied science and mathematics at CCNY.  World-renowned physicists like Myriam Sarachik, who serves on the governing council of the National Academy of Sciences, and well-known author Michio Kaku teach our students, and distinguished professors conduct cutting edge research on everything from climate change to structural biology to sustainable energy, and everything in between.  City College students, even as undergraduates, have an unprecedented opportunity to work in these labs.  In the past 8 years the Division has produced two Rhodes Scholars and several Goldwater and Truman scholars, as well as graduates who have gone on to the most prestigious graduate schools, supported by grants from the National Science Foundation to pursue their research.
