Historical Note

The College of Natural Science was created in 1962 to provide programs for MSU students in biological, physical, and mathematical sciences. Predecessor units include the Applied Science Division (1921-1944) and the Science and Arts College (1944-1962) which included Biological Sciences and Mathematics and Physical Science Divisions.

Through its 24 departments and programs, the College of Natural Science has earned an international reputation for strong research and academic programs. The breadth of research in the College allows students to enhance their education by participating in research projects in labs on campus and field locations throughout the world.
