The Department is housed in our newest building, the Hagfors Center for Science, Business and Religion. Collaborations within the Department and across the University are valued in order to provide the highest caliber education for our students through opportunities such as internships, faculty/student research and service learning opportunities. Our location in Minneapolis provides broad ranging opportunities for collaboration with industry partners as well as colleagues at the numerous colleges and universities in the Twin Cities.
