Dean’s Message

Now is a thrilling time to be a part of the School of Science and Mathematics (SOSM) at Howard Payne University!

To study science and math at HPU is to spend quality time in the classroom and in the laboratory with your professors who will be right alongside you as you learn, helping to prepare you for life beyond your college experience. It’s this kind of personal attention in a Christian atmosphere that will cause the School of Science and Math and Howard Payne to occupy a very special place in your heart as you move forward in life. We would love for you to join us on a challenging educational adventure where you can expand your knowledge, your faith, and your vision for service.

Some of our recent graduates have gone on to pursue graduate degrees in mathematics, biology, biochemistry, health administration, forensic science, and ocean science. Still others were admitted to professional programs in medicine, nursing, optometry, pharmacy, dentistry, physical therapy, and more. In addition to the pre-professional biomedical programs, other graduates have also found great jobs in clinical laboratories, city parks and recreation departments, as dental assistants, water quality analysts, nutritionists, forensic analysts, and teachers just to name a few. One of our engineering science students came to see me recently, excited that he had already been offered a job (after graduation) as a programing engineer where he is currently an intern!

The faculty at HPU are here to coach and guide you as you determine your future career.

In addition to our established programs in biology, chemistry, and mathematics, our more recently added programs in forensic science and engineering science continue to grow under the direction of our dedicated faculty. We are currently working on becoming ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) certified and hope to have this in place soon.

New for the 2017-2018 academic year is the biomedical science program. The School of Science and Math is very excited about the new program. This rigorous course of study is ideal for students wishing to pursue careers in various medical fields as well as biomedical engineering, and biomedical research. If you’re interested, I would encourage you to visit the program’s webpage to learn more.

Please explore all of our web pages and contact us with any questions you might have about any of our programs. I know there is a place for you here at the Howard Payne School of Science and Math, and we look forward to helping you find it.

Sincerely,
Dr. Pam Bryant, Dean
