The Department of Natural and Applied Sciences houses an interdisciplinary major and minor program of study in Environmental Science; disciplinary majors and minors in Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Geoscience, Mathematics; a disciplinary minor in Physics; and a pre-professional program of study in Engineering.

NAS faculty teach and engage in scholarship in both their disciplinary programs and the interdisciplinary program in Environmental Science. Many of the faculty make major contributions to the Environmental Science and Policy graduate program as well.

Students can consult with their faculty advisor early and often to be aware of any changes or new opportunities.
