The Science Marketing program is a hybrid major that provides students an opportunity to utilize knowledge from two different fields and apply the concepts from both in a truly integrated approach.
Students in the Science Marketing major take fundamental biology and chemistry courses to develop a rich understanding of scientific principles and the scientific method. The science content of the major provides students with the background to understand how scientific products and technology work and technical needs of clients. Courses taken in the business department provide students with an understanding of the fundamental principles of marketing to consumers, assessing consumer demand and needs, and management of employees.
The Cedar Rapids to Iowa City “Corridor” is home to many STEM-based businesses that employ a STEM-educated workforce. A sample of possible employers in Eastern Iowa include: ACT, ADM, Cambrex, Cargill, DuPont, General Mills, John Deere, Kemin Industries, Monsanto, Novartis Pharmaceuticals, Penford Products, Proctor and Gamble, Rockwell Collins, Siemens, and Vermeer Corporation among others. Students graduating from the Science Marketing program will be excellent potential employees for many of these companies as well as organizations in other locations.
