The Department
of Natural Science

Hands-on learning + state-of-the-art equipment + Salesian values =
a natural science degree that's uniquely DeSales

Our class sizes might be small, but our opportunities for learning are huge. At DeSales, you'll never be just a number — you'll personally get to know your teachers, advisors, and research mentors. The educators in our department represent individual specialties ranging from biotechnology and exercise science to ecology and neuroanatomy among the biologists. Among the chemists, specialties include pharmaceutical development, fuels chemistry and instrumental analysis. 

The Priscilla Payne Hurd Science Center provides state-of-the-art teaching and research laboratories in chemistry, biology, biotechnology, environmental, and human performance.
