Department of Natural and Physical Sciences
The mission of the School of Natural and Applied Sciences at Park University is to create opportunities for students to explore their place in the universe and their place in an increasingly technological society through excellence in teaching. The student will learn to appreciate science as a means of acquiring knowledge; scientific knowledge being the cumulative result of applying logic to sensory data for the purpose of developing theories that explain natural phenomena. We prepare students to be lifelong learners as scientists, teachers, researchers, and health care professionals, as well as users and developers of technology. Our graduates will be inquisitive critical thinkers who are articulate, literate, and committed to action in their global community.
The School of Natural and Applied Sciences will be a leader in the education of students who desire an understanding of the importance of ethical applications of science and technology to improve the condition of humanity and the biosphere.
