The College of Natural Sciences Director for Sponsored Research and Postgraduate Education works with the Associate Dean for Research and Facilities to provide oversight for all graduate and postdoctoral programs across the college. This includes development and oversight of initiatives that provide training and support for graduate students and postdoctoral scientists, development of methods to track graduate student and postdoc performance, and the analysis of policy issues affecting postgraduate scientists. The contributions made by graduate students and postdocs, both in research and undergraduate education, are critical to the success of the college. Our goal is to provide the services and resources necessary to prepare our postgraduate scholars to be the innovative researchers, educators and leaders of the future.
The College of Natural Sciences is home to a diverse array of top-ranked graduate programs offering Master's of Science, Master's of Arts and Ph.D. degrees. Information about specific graduate programs, including application information, can be accessed from the program webpages linked below.
