The sciences afford the opportunity for exploration and discovery in the pursuit of new knowledge, understanding systems in the physical and natural world, and for bettering the human condition. With the challenges the world faces, there has never been a better time to pursue an education in the sciences, health care or sport studies. Scientists, technicians and caregivers are in high demand. The College of Natural and Health Sciences offers rigorous, high quality curricula designed to prepare students for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
Our faculty are excellent teachers, both in the classroom and working with students on an individual basis. UT has invested heavily in the development of our college’s teaching and research facilities and laboratories. The faculty, not graduate students, teach all laboratory-based courses in all of our departments.
Our college continually fosters relationships with organizations in the greater Tampa Bay area and elsewhere to provide students with the opportunity to pursue an internship, volunteer, or interact with professionals working in their chosen field. Each department also offers study abroad courses that students can take for credit toward their degree.
The University of Tampa's undergraduate program provides a strong foundation for post-graduate work in the sciences as students are immersed in their major discipline while also touching on curricula that extend beyond the sciences. The nearly one-on-one environment fosters an opportunity for greater depth of knowledge and enables students to succeed in the following careers: Dentistry, Medicine, Optometry, Pharmacy, Podiatry and Veterinary Medicine.
