The College of Natural Sciences supports an extensive array of top-ranked graduate programs, with Master's of Science, Master's of Arts and Ph.D. degrees. 

The College is committed to preparing leaders in research communities that are becoming increasingly diverse. We believe that our students benefit from participation in a culture of diversity. The college’s programs encourage applications from individuals within populations traditionally underrepresented in our disciplines. Our goal is to provide all our students with an inclusive and supportive environment in which they can reach their greatest intellectual potential.
