College of Science
Science is a natural choice for students
Since the University of Nevada opened in 1874, science has played a leading role in the growth of the University.
Upon its inception and through its various incarnations, the College of Science at the University of Nevada, Reno has had one basic task: to provide the quality of education and scientific leadership necessary to achieve the highest level of academic excellence. It is committed to our diverse and inclusive learning community, one that works to advance scientific research and knowledge locally, nationally and worldwide.
The Mackay School of Earth Sciences & Engineering is one of the first comprehensive schools of mines in the world.
The College offers accelerated programs that combine bachelor's degrees with degrees in medicine and dental medicine.
