College of Sciences


The natural and mathematical sciences represent the dual cutting edges of our technological future. UNLV’s College of Sciences is dedicated to making that future real, both in the creation of new knowledge through research and in the application of that knowledge in the classroom, the community and the world. These are the guiding principles that bring students, faculty and staff together. Whether in a small discussion session, in a research laboratory or in the field , UNLV College of Sciences graduate students are in an environment in which learning is the common goal. Many students choose a graduate institution based on the reputation of an individual faculty scholar or laboratory group. This is often an excellent approach to finding the right match between a new student and a mentor. However, even those who come to UNLV Sciences without a particular graduate project in mind can count on identifying potential major professors who are receptive to a wide array of interests and backgrounds. The College of Sciences, through its active programs of research and teaching, has been able to assemble a remarkable foundation of state-of-the-art instrumentation and facilities, providing an ever-growing set of opportunities for students who desire the best from their graduate experiences.
