STEM students stand in front of a building at University of HoustonThe Department of Science & Mathematics encompasses two discipline areas: Biology and Mathematics.

Aviation Science

The Bachelor of Science in Aviation Management at Texas A&M University-Central Texas provides a comprehensive background in aviation studies, management and business to prepare students for airport and diverse general aviation-related roles. The Aviation Science-Professional Pilot Bachelor of Science at Texas A&M University-Central Texas provides students with a well-rounded curriculum that encompasses conceptual foundations in aviation science and management.


Biology is a multidisciplinary cutting-edge field encompassing the vast diversity of life from the smallest amino acid to ecosystem dynamics.  Our program includes a diversity of courses that are taught by faculty who are dedicated to quality education through scholarship and research.  The breadth of our faculty interests and experiences enable students to specialize their degree in sub-disciplines of biology such as biotechnology, ecology and conservation biology, organismal biology, and premedical biology.


Our mathematics program offers a variety of courses in theoretical and applied mathematics at the Bachelor’s and Master’s levels. At the Bachelor’s level, majors may obtain a degree with or without secondary teacher’s certification. At the Master’s level, we are particularly focused on equipping students seeking careers in higher education, operations research, data analytics, and mathematical modeling.
