The Faculty of Sciences serves as a vibrant platform to develop and maintain the most relevant unique and multidisciplinary programs in the broad area of Science at the University of Balamand. This mission is accomplished through three core goals: Excellence in teaching; high quality research; and outstanding service to the community. The Faculty hosts currently more than 400 students pursuing undergraduate and graduate studies in Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Environmental Sciences, Mathematics, and Physics. The Faculty fully integrates the Premedical and Pre-Pharmacy Programs in its curricula and offers also a Teaching Diploma in Applied Sciences.

Guided by a ten-year strategic plan (2010-2020), the Faculty of Sciences has begun enriching its course offerings in Mathematics, Physics and Environmental Sciences, and updating its curriculum in Biology and Chemistry particularly in conjunction with new developments and requirements for Medical  and Pharmaceutical studies. Its Department of Computer Science witnessed lately a major reorganization of its orientations, focusing on the most relevant topics for the job market. Health Information Systems and Software Engineering are two main areas of focus in this Department. Apart from its strong ties with the Faculty of Medicine, the Faculty of Sciences has also initiated strong cooperation with other faculties such as Health Sciences, Engineering and Business. In addition to the currently offered M.Sc. Degrees in all its departments, the Faculty has launched collaborative Ph.D. programs with several European institutions in the fields of Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Sciences and Physics. The infrastructural support for such programs, including laboratory facilities and library resources, is being built with a very fast pace in order to accommodate competitive research in these demanding fields of study.
To fulfill these objectives, and accommodate the rapid increase in demand for enrollment, the Faculty needs to increase the number of full-time faculty members, strengthen the research element, expand its laboratory facilities in all fields, and make more space available for classrooms, meeting rooms and faculty offices.
Additional funding is needed over the coming years in the areas listed below.
1. Scholarships and Student Assistantships
2. Faculty Support
3. Upgrading laboratory facilities
4. Research equipment
5. Overall space improvement.
