Experience-based science education

Experiential learning is a core value of Antioch College and a strong emphasis in the sciences program. We offer small class sizes and individualized mentorship with faculty who teach all of our classes. Students pursue their own interests in the sciences as they design their own majors. Our renowned Cooperative Education program provides students with multiple opportunities to explore professional scientific experiences. We prepare students for a wide variety of post-graduation opportunities, such as employment, graduate and professional schools.
