College of Science and Mathematics


Welcome to Charleston Southern University's College of Science and Mathematics. We offer degree programs in Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Sciences, Mathematics. The Department of Aerospace Sciences is the Air Force ROTC program and the Palmetto Battalion Army ROTC Detachment is also part of the College of Science and Mathematics.


Air Force ROTC

Air Force ROTC could change your life. Charleston Southern University's Air Force Detachment 772 might be the smallest detachment in the U.S. Air Force, but we make up for it with our enthusiasm and effort.



The Palmetto Battalion Army ROTC Detachment is one of the largest ROTC battalions in the country. We offer the opportunity for students to commission as an Active Duty, National Guard or Reserve component officer. Our program includes instruction in values, time management, physical fitness, basic military customs and courtesies, general military subjects, tactics and communication skills.



The mission of our physical sciences programs is to unify an excellence in chemistry with a love for God and respect for His creation. You’ll study a wide range of things including genetics, microbiology, biology on both the cellular and the molecular levels, so you’ll be equipped for a career in bio-medical research, molecular biology, chemistry, pharmaceuticals, genetics,  research or one of many other options.


A degree in Biology can prepare you for many exciting careers in Biology and Biology related fields. We offer three Bachelor of Science in biology programs:  General Biology, Preprofessional and  Wildlife Biology. Students who major in biology can continue with careers in Medicine, Dentistry, Scientific Research and Laboratory Technology among others.


CSU offers a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry or Biochemistry. Many graduates will go on to medical school, dental, pharmacy or to further study in chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology or toxicology. When students complete the program, as we recommend, they have an excellent chance of acceptance into a postgraduate institution.

Computer Science

The mission of the Computer Science department at Charleston Southern University is to incubate technically excellent, highly ethical, can-do computer professionals who will learn, lead and serve from a Christian worldview. CSU focuses on the unchanging fundamentals of computer science and emphasize Christian character and ethical behavior.


Our goal is to provide mathematics majors with the necessary skills for a successful career in their chosen field while also providing them with a solid foundation for the continued study of mathematics or computer science at the postbaccalaureate level.
