About the College

Eastern Kentucky University’s College of Science is committed to providing exceptional education to our students.  Outstanding faculty members teach courses and conduct research with students in the classroom, in the laboratory and in the field.

The College offers a broad range of degree programs in physical, life and mathematical sciences, mathematics, and computer science, and prepares students to become teachers of science and mathematics at the secondary level through its six departments: Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Computer Science, Geosciences, Mathematics and Statistics, and Physics and Astronomy.

The College also offers pre-professional programs in engineering, medicine, optometry, dentistry, veterinary medicine, pharmacy, physical therapy, and physician assistant.

Additionally, the College of Science plays a central role in the University’s general education program through which all University students are provided the opportunity to develop the skills, the knowledge, and the discernment essential to the full development of each person as an individual and as a member of society.

The College is home to the Division of Natural Areas through which it provides outdoor facilities to University groups, school groups, and the general public for environmental research and education.

Eastern Kentucky University’s College of Science was created on July 1, 2016 as part of the restructuring of the former College of Arts and Sciences.
