From digital media to organic chemistry and exercise science, the School of Science and Technology (SST) provides students with cutting-edge courses that take them to the next step in their academic and professional careers. Internships, faculty-mentored projects, course-embedded research and technology-enhanced learning opportunities are available.

SST provides programs in science, math and technology. No matter their major, students will always be challenged to think outside the box – and outside the lab.

All SST majors are challenged to demonstrate mastery of their chosen field through faculty-mentored research projects or internships. It’s a requirement. Past projects have focused on such topics as air quality, the environmental impact of kudzu and the development of web-based animation as a teaching tool.

SST believes in using smart technology to help students grasp new material and develop critical-thinking skills. That commitment has led to many teaching innovations – including the award-winning Mobile Learning Project, which incorporates hand-held digital technology into the teaching of organic chemistry. In the end, however, it’s our faculty’s dedication to student success that makes the SST a great place to learn.

“The dream that drove me to seek a higher education is my parents’ dream,” says GGC graduate Mark Guevera. Mark’s parents made the difficult choice to leave Honduras, the only home they had ever known, to give their family a better future, enduring decades of separation. When Mark crossed the stage to receive his diploma, graduating with honors after a college career filled with distinction, his entire family shared his success. Mark now works for the IT firm in Duluth where he interned. “I have already realized that learning does not stop with a college degree. There are no limits to what I can learn and accomplish, and that is a beautiful thing.”
