Atlanta Metropolitan State College
The Division of Science, Math, and Health Professions
The Science, Math, and Health Professions Division (SMHP) is committed to increasing the number of students, including underrepresented minorities, in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The Division promotes the development of the critical thinking, computational, and communication skills of its students.
Accordingly, instruction is provided in various formats to accommodate varied learning styles. Instructional technologies, including graphics, computer-based instruction, online courses, multimedia, and audio-visual technology, are used to enhance teaching and learning. Hands-on activities and interactive learning/computing are an integral part of laboratory instruction.
The Division sponsors early intervention/pre-college and bridge programs for the purpose of attracting and preparing young scholars for STEM and health professional careers. The Division puts emphasis on undergraduate research and its baccalaureate program in biological science is a research-based curriculum.
The Division offers a full array of STEM and health profession programs. Please review the left menu for more details on a particular program. Transfer programs are designed to prepare students for matriculation into the AMSC biological science 4-year program or to transfer to a senior college or research university for professional school in medicine, pharmacy, or dentistry.
Division's Mission Statement
The Division of Science, Mathematics and Health Professions seeks to prepare traditional and non-traditional students to complete associate and bachelor degrees, as well as transfer programs in science, mathematics and health professions related careers. Programs provide measurable, theoretical, and practical learning experiences which enable students to understand, analyze, and interpret scientific and mathematical concepts, principles, and methods.
