|New faculty, an increased emphasis on research, and an expanding curriculum have combined to make the College of Science one of the fastest growing academic areas on campus. Its enrollment now totals over 3,200 students, with over 500 students at the graduate level.
Students pursue a variety of degree options, including accelerated offerings such as the five-year B.S. in biology/M.B.A. in biomedical sciences management and seven-year options leading to medical and dental degrees. Fueled by the college’s growth, research initiatives are flourishing. Examples include:
The Department of Biology strives to develop research projects in contemporaneous issues such as genetics, ecology, microbiology and other areas, while offering exciting opportunities for our graduate and undergraduate students to achieve excellence. The department aims to maintain a diverse group of scientists recognized for outstanding teaching and research. We maintain cutting-edge core facilities to support a wide array of research projects. We aim to provide high-quality training and mentoring to help prepare students for careers in academia,
||medicine, research, industry, teaching and other research fields.
The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry features award-winning academic advising and teaching and provides excellent career preparation in research, education and the chemical industry. The department has added seven new faculty members and much new instrumentation in the last three years. New, exciting research is being conducted in all disciplines of chemistry. Analytical chemistry is among the areas of study that are thriving; UT Arlington has become one of the top 10 universities in the nation for graduate studies in analytical chemistry.
The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences is interdisciplinary and organized around Earth Systems: The Solid Earth Geosystem; the Hydrologic System; the Atmospheric and Climate Systems; the Biologic System; and the Anthropogenic System. To accomplish this broad systems approach to education and research, the department collaborates with affiliated faculty from Biology, Chemistry, Civil Engineering and the School of Urban and Public Affairs.
|| The Department of Mathematics is rapidly evolving into the premier mathematics research and educational center in the region for undergraduate and graduate studies. A high-quality research-oriented faculty has strengths in pure and applied mathematics, statistics, and mathematics education.
The Department of Physics' internationally recognized research programs provide unparalleled undergraduate and graduate training in theoretical, experimental and applied physics. Students have many opportunities to participate in cutting-edge research in Solid State Physics, High Energy Physics, Astrophysics, Biophysics and Nanotechnology. Our graduates are sought after by both industry and academia because of their broad preparation in science, technology and research.
The Department of Psychology's lab-based and scientifically-oriented undergraduate program is the strongest in the state, and students can participate in research with nationally-recognized faculty. The graduate program is one of the top experimental programs in the nation, and has specialization tracks in health psychology/ neuroscience and industrial/organizational psychology.
