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.
Field Work and Research - Anthropology, sociology, and psychology students have 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.
Health Science Club - Students interested in health care careers can get involved in the Health Science club to meet and interact with other students as well as faculty members and recruiters from professional programs.
Internships - UA-PTC partners with UAMS College of Health Professions to hold an annual two-day student internship at UAMS for students to receive valuable hands-on experience in the various health care professions other than nursing.
Research and industry - 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 coursework at UA-PTC is complete.
