It is my honour and privilege to welcome you to University of The Bahamas and the Faculty of Pure and Applied Sciences.

We are one of the most diverse faculties at the university – our faculty come from across the globe and our programmes prepare students to meet global and national challenges in the sciences, health and technology.  We have a rich history and tradition of producing the nation’s health professionals, engineers, technologists, architects and scientists.

As home to one of world’s richest oceans and coastal ecosystems, we are able to integrate into our programmes and research agendas our unique network of student-centered learning environments – field stations, natural preserves, laboratories as well as ecologically and culturally rich field sites – that stretch across the Bahamian archipelago.

As we expand the depth and breadth of our mission, we will utilise these natural resources as well as the energy and ingenuity of researchers and students to create and apply new knowledge to address challenges and seize opportunities that cut across five core areas:

  1. health and wellness;
  2. food security and production;
  3. sustainable development;
  4. energy and natural resources; and
  5. applied mathematics and computational and quantitative sciences.

Whether you are a prospective or current student, parent, faculty or staff member, alumnus or community partner, I hope that you come to understand the passion and enthusiasm of the people that make the Faculty of Pure and Applied Sciences a very special place.  I encourage you to contact us with questions or comments – better yet, we invite you to come and visit us.

Once again, welcome!
