College of Science and Computer School (CSCSGS)

Objectives

The College of Science and Computer Studies Graduate Studies (CSCSGS) is one of the units of the College of Science and Computer Studies (CSCS) along with four other departments: Biological Sciences, Computer Studies, Mathematics, and Physical Sciences, which aims to offer programs that develop responsible and committed graduates who follow the tenets of Lasallian education.

Guided by the Lasallian core values of FAITH, ZEAL IN SERVICE and COMMUNION IN MISSION, CSCS aims to:

  • Produce academically competent graduates who are competitive locally and globally, and who can greatly contribute to the manpower demands of the country;
  • Develop innovative and creative thinkers through researches, especially in the areas of mathematics: computer, and natural sciences;
  • Enhance among learners the qualities of a true Lasallian by helping them recognize the community not as a subject or laboratory for learning but as a venue to reach out to the less fortunate. Specifically, the CSCSGS prepares graduate students to become highly competent in aspects of Biology and Mathematics through its Master's programs in Biology, Environmental Science, Physical Science and Mathematics, and Doctorate program in Biology;
  • The Graduate programs in Biology, Environmental Science and Physical Science provide well-rounded education in the life/physical sciences through scientific researches, field exposures, and laboratory works/ and classroom interactions.
  • The Master's programs in Mathematics update students with modern trends in mathematics through lectures and activities on mathematical theories and applications, and extensive research.

Programs

  • Doctor of Philosophy in Biology (PhD Bio)
  • Master of Science in Biology
  • Master in Biology (Non-thesis)
These programs are offered for working biologists in various professions including educators at the secondary level. The program utilizes small classes with convenient and flexible course schedules primarily every Saturdays to allow part-time study for working adults. The program allows interaction with other professionals in the field and provides an opportunity to further and update knowledge leading to promotion in the workplace.
  • Master of Science in Biology Major in Conservation Biology
  • Master of Science in Environmental Science
  • Master in Environmental Studies (Non-thesis)

These programs focus on the need for scientists that will participate in the development of local, national, and international environmental policy. This degree provides the student with functional curriculum and research opportunities in the environment. The program utilizes small classes with convenient and flexible course schedules primarily every Saturdays to allow part-time study for working adults.
Master of Science in Physical Science
This program trains its students to become specialists/scientist in the physical phenomena of nature with three tracking to choose from: Applied Chemistry, Applied Physics and Geology. Students under the program are exposed to various scenes of field research and undergo trainings in government, industries, and other research institutions. The program utilizes small classes with convenient and flexible course schedules primarily every Saturdays to allow part-time study for working adults.
