College of Natural & Health Sciences

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

The faculty and staff members of the College are dedicated to providing, high quality educational experiences for all students who choose to major in biological sciences, pre-professional 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 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, student research opportunities are emphasized 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.
