The Master’s of Science in the Natural Sciences program at Northeastern State University provides students with multidisciplinary training in the Natural Sciences beyond that of the baccalaureate degree.


Natural Science students at Northeastern State University gain experience in the design, execution, and reporting of scientific research by completing a research project and Master’s thesis. The curriculum consists of formal courses in one or more areas of concentration and incorporates the candidate’s background, goals, and objectives. The areas of concentration are Biology, Chemistry and Physics. A central goal of the program is to prepare students for doctoral programs, employment in the natural sciences, or advancement in their current profession.

All students involved in the program are required to conduct research and disseminate the results of their work through appropriate venues. Research training is a crucial part of graduate training in the sciences; thus, this aspect of the program directly relates to the overall objective of training future scientists for their intended career.


The graduate courses chosen for this program are intended to give students depth in the natural sciences.  Adequate classroom instruction is a critical part to broadening student understanding of science and enabling them to be successful researchers.  However, the program also specifically includes multi-disciplinary courses that will give a student exposure to a wider range of concepts and topics than are typically included in a more traditional, discipline specific graduate program.
