The Department of Natural Sciences prepares students for the challenges of the 21st century. This mission is accomplished:
The Department of Natural Sciences offers modern instrumentation, including GC-MS, HPLC, AA, UV-Vis, FTIR, compound and dissecting microscopes for the life sciences, and polarizing microscopes for geological studies.
For the premedical studies student, the Department offers several advanced human anatomy electives rarely available at the undergraduate level. Instructional physics labs are equipped with Macintosh computers for collecting and processing data. The Department maintains, for the use of all natural sciences students, a lab containing ten computers and a laser printer.
In 1998, Shawnee State University was selected as a seismic station for the Division of Geological Survey of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. The seismic station is housed in the Department of Natural Sciences. In addition, the Clark Planetarium is maintained by a department faculty member.
