An education in science involves both learning, and learning how.  Students cannot effectively know, unless they know how.

Welcome to the College of Natural and Health Sciences, where students will learn...and learn how.


The College is subdivided into four departments each with their own program areas offering a variety of major programs leading to baccalaureate or masters degrees within:

Mission Statement and Learning Objectives

The faculty and staff members of the College are dedicated to providing, high quality educational experiences for undergraduate students who choose to major in biological sciences, health sciences, mathematics, physical sciences or science education. In addition to our dedication to quality education, we strive to create a friendly atmosphere in which students may interact with the faculty and fellow students. Individualized academic advising, career counseling, and academic tutoring are available daily upon request. Faculty strive to prepare classroom instruction, demonstrations, challenging laboratory exercises, and clinical and field experiences that provide a "real world" dimension to academic studies. Also, undergraduate student research is emphasized, thus providing in-depth experience with the scientific method, data collection, report writing, and  the theoretical knowledge base of an academic discipline.

The geographic setting of our campus is ideal for field studies in the biological sciences and geology. The lakes, rivers, mountains, and forests surrounding our campus also provide numerous opportunities for hiking, boating, camping, hunting, and fishing. So, if you enjoy outdoor activities, you will like studying science at Arkansas Tech University and its rural setting.

Biology, chemistry, geology and physics courses are taught in modern, well-equipped laboratories. Mathematics courses as well as pre-professional curricula in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, optometry, medical technology, dental hygiene and physical therapy are also available. The allied health sciences of nursing, medical technology, and health information management are well established and successful programs of study.
