The College is home to four departments, each with unique programs offering a variety of majors leading to baccalaureate or masters degrees within:

We are dedicated to providing high quality educational experiences for all students whether in biological sciences, pre-professional health, allied health & medical sciences, mathematics, nursing, physical sciences and science education. In addition to our dedication to quality education, we strive to create a friendly atmosphere in which students may interact and engage with the faculty and fellow students. Individualized academic advising, career counseling, and academic tutoring are available daily. Classroom instruction, demonstrations, challenging laboratory exercises, clinical and field experiences will provide an added dimension to academic studies. Student research opportunities are emphasized providing in-depth experience with data collection, the scientific method, technical 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, environmental 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 natural setting.
