The faculty and staff of the Mathematics, Natural and Social Sciences
division would like to welcome you to Pulaski Technical College. The decision to
enroll demonstrates a commitment to continue your education. The faculty and
staff of this division are also committed to this goal and our mission.
The mission of the Mathematics, Natural and Social Sciences division is, in
part, to “provide a university transfer program of high academic quality”
(Mission statement, Pulaski Technical College). Students and faculty members
will work together to accomplish this mission through a course of study that
fosters development and refinement of the critical thinking, problem solving and
analytical skills necessary to succeed in the sciences and in life. The five
departments, Biological and Health Sciences, Physical Sciences, Social Sciences,
Behavioral Sciences, and Mathematical Sciences, are comprised of faculty members
that bring a wealth of world experience to their students.
The department faculties have experience from careers as respiratory therapy,
nursing, dietetics, physician, veterinary medicine, social work, education,
counseling, academic research, and in industries such as aeronautics and
engineering. Whatever their academic background or professional affiliation, the
faculty members are dedicated to providing a high quality, academic environment
in the classroom and laboratory.
It is important to recognize that learning in higher education involves more
than the classroom. The Mathematics, Natural and Social Sciences division
strives to provide opportunities for learning that involve individuals from the
community as well as other institutions of higher education. These opportunities
are provided through a variety venues.
Anthropology, sociology, and psychology students have, in the past, participated
in field work and small scale research projects on campus and at historical
sites. The results of some of these projects were presented at state and
national conferences. Students interested in health care careers have the option
of becoming involved in the Health Science club to meet and interact with other
students as well as faculty members and recruiters from professional programs.
PTC partners with UAMS College of Health Professions to hold an annual 2 day
student internship at UAMS for students to receive valuable hands on experience
in the various health care professions other than nursing.
Academics in the scientific fields also extend into areas of pure research and
industry. The division has activities where students interested in research and
industrial fields may attend events that provide exposure to four year college
graduate students and faculty from the University of Arkansas, Arkansas State
University, the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, the University of Central
Arkansas, the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, and the University of
Arkansas at Little Rock.
The focus of all these activities is to further student success by providing a
crucial link for students to successfully transfer after their tasks at Pulaski
Technical College are complete.
The decision to study and pursue a degree in the fields involved in the
Mathematics, Natural and Social Sciences division requires dedication and a
commitment. This dedication and commitment is matched by the faculty and staff
of the division and its departments. Please contact myself or the department
chairs if you have any questions.
Again, welcome to Pulaski Technical College and the Mathematics, Natural and
Social Sciences division.
