Program Overview

The Master of Natural Sciences degree (MNS), administered through The Graduate School in conjunction with the College of Science, provides the depth and breadth of study in the sciences that is required of science professionals and school teachers. The degree program allows crossover into allied fields. For instance, a teacher seeking an advanced degree can tailor course work to obtain secondary certification in more than one area, or an employee of a public agency can broadly enhance his or her knowledge and skills.
