Natural Science Building
Home to hundreds of research opportunities for undergraduate students
Located near North Neighborhood, the College of Natural Science (NatSci) is home to 27 departments and programs in the biological, physical and mathematical sciences. Departments include Cell and Molecular Biology, Chemistry, Plant Research, Statistics and Probability and more. The college averages roughly $57 million in research expenditures annually while also providing world-class educational opportunities to 5,500 undergraduate students and 1,200 graduate and doctoral students. NatSci is a partner with the MSU IQ facility and also offers hundreds of research opportunities for undergraduate students.
The building is also home to the Department of Entomology’s Bug House. The MSU Bug House has both pinned and live insects and arthropods. The campus community and the public can schedule tours to learn more about these creatures — and you can even hold live insects as you learn!
