The Applied Science Graduate Program is an applied, interdisciplinary research program.   The program offers two degrees, the Doctor of Philosophy and the Master of Science.

Areas of interest include:

Applied Biosciences                                 Environmental Science

Applied Chemistry                                   Geophysics

Applied Physics                                       Materials Science

Applied Mathematics                              Nanotechnology

Computational Science                          Statistics                

If you are excited about pursuing a degree in our program, see critical information for prospective students and begin the application process on-line.

The beauty of this graduate program is its interdisciplinary approach, which allows students to cross the traditional lines between areas of science and engineering.

This unique research and educational experience gives many of our graduates the opportunity of finding prestigious job positions in academia and industry such as faculty members at universities, scientists in national labs, or researchers in companies.

Curriculum requirements are documented in the UALR Graduate Catalog (pdf). Please read the Graduate Student Handbook and look around our web site for more details on the program.
