College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics


One of the characteristics of the 21st century is the marked change in the relation of citizens to their environment. Space probes, orbiting satellites, and productive research on the structure and synthesis of living matter have brought to the forefront for reexamination such time-honored queries as, “What is the nature of the universe?” or “Can people control their natural environment?” or “How did life begin?”

Scientifically found answers to these and other questions, coupled with proper application of this knowledge for humankind’s betterment, must be a significant part of the goal of educated people everywhere.

The objectives of the college are to acquaint the student with the kinds of problems which lend themselves to possible solutions through the use of science; to introduce different scientific techniques through significant illustrative experiences; to give a sense of perspective in the development of science; and to develop an understanding of the basic community of all scientific disciplines.
