New Semester. New Initiatives.

As we enter a new semester, whether you join us virtually or on campus, President Washington urges our community to do their part in continuing to keep Mason’s COVID-19 cases among the lowest in Virginia’s large universities. Also, Dean Miralles-Wilhelm discusses the new science priorities set forth by President Biden's administration.

Graduation 2019

Academic programs that bring opportunity

Just outside the nation's capital, we've built connections with government agencies and industry partners working at the forefront of scientific research. Combine those with our advanced facilities for getting real-world work experience and options for tailoring your degree, and our students have more opportunity to land jobs, internships, and research collaborations that really help them stand out.


Together, we are Mason Science. Giving Day 2021

You can help. April 8th is Mason Giving day, and your gift will provide immediate financial assistance and other resources to students facing an unexpected financial need that could derail their progress towards a degree.
