In the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics of HCLAS, students and faculty work together to foster the discovery and transmission of knowledge in astronomy, biology, chemistry, geology, environmental studies, mathematics, physics, and psychology. Students conduct research in both the laboratory and the field under the guidance of their faculty mentors, and they go on to present their data and ideas at local, regional, and national fora. They prepare to continue their studies in advanced degree programs in their fields and for a wide array of careers as medical and mental health professionals, research scientists, educators, and entrepreneurs. The School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics prepares students for careers in the natural and physical sciences and for professional schools, and offers courses to foster an understanding of science and mathematics to students outside the sciences.
