Natural and Health Sciences

The College of Natural and Health Sciences offers bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programs in the natural, health, human and mathematical sciences. Our students benefit from mentoring by faculty who are national and international experts in their fields and from meaningful research opportunities in state-of-the-art facilities.

Our graduates leave us with a first-class education that has prepared them to contribute to society whether they become health-care providers, educators, scientists, dietitians, speech-language pathologists, audiologists, sport administrators, rehabilitation counselors, mathematicians, athletic trainers, recreation program managers, gerontologists or work in other public service-oriented fields. Regardless of their area of expertise, they make a difference in the communities in which they live and work.

Celebrating NHS Research

The College of Natural and Health Sciences’ (NHS) Student Research Celebration honors noteworthy research by NHS undergraduate and graduate students as well as exemplary research mentoring by NHS Faculty. Fundraising associated with the event benefits the NHS Student Research Fund.

Held in April in conjunction with the University’s Student Research Day and Academic Excellence Week, the event begins with student poster presentations selected by their programs, departments and schools for this special recognition.
