"The Department of Applied Science at the College of William and Mary is an interdisciplinary graduate department that offers M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in the physical and natural sciences. The program is offered by the core faculty of Applied Science in cooperation with affiliated faculty from the Departments of Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, and the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS), as well as from the NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC) and the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (JLab). Faculty research interests include nondestructive evaluation, robotics, medical imaging, epidemic modeling, nanotechnology, surface science, electronic and magnetic materials, physical and chemical properties and characterization of polymers, laser spectroscopy, solid state nuclear magnetic resonance, neurophysiology, and computational neuroscience and cell biology."[1]

Applied Science was offered as a program at the College as early as the 1971-1972 academic year. The program is listed in the 1971-72 undergraduate college, as a graduate program which led to a master of science degree. Faculty from different departments, such as mathematics and chemistry, taught in the program. As a interdisciplinary program, there were two areas of focus: Applied Mathematics and Computer Science and Chemical Physics. (Undergraduate catalog)
