Natural Sciences

Earning a Ph.D. requires extended study and intense mental effort. A PhD is an academic study on which you concentrate for four to six years after obtaining your master’s degree, and that leads, if successful, to a PhD degree, the highest academic degree.

Research in Natural Studies is vital to understanding how the earth works and how its various systems interact with one another. Those who study Natural Science on the doctoral level will be in a position to lead these studies. A PhD in Natural Science is the degree required for research and instruction in this area of science.

Europe is the sixth largest continent and includes 47 countries and assorted dependencies, islands and territories. It is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the south, Asia to the east, and the Atlantic Ocean to the West.
