Natural and Applied Sciences
Blending theory with practice,research, courses, and programs in the Department of Natural and Applied Sciences (NAS) allows students to focus on two broad domains: sustainability and environmental sciences and health and human sciences. Faculty and research fellows in the NAS department pursue diverse questions aligned with those domains and increasingly explore topics at the intersection of environmental sustainability, human health, and psychological sciences.
