Natural and Applied Sciences
It’s no secret that science and technology are driving the “innovation economy” of the future. At Bentley, you’ll discover how advances in these dynamic fields can benefit individuals, businesses and society. With a focus on two broad disciplines — health and human sciences and sustainability and environmental sciences — our courses integrate scientific theory with hands-on learning in such diverse fields as biology, chemistry, earth and environmental science, genetics and psychology. In our health-related programs, you’ll focus primarily on physical and psychological health, examining how advances in these areas apply to such varied fields as human resources, organizational management, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and other areas of health care delivery. And in our sustainability-related programs, you’ll explore the complex interactions between humans and the environment, and the significant challenges — including waste management, energy and water use, and global climate change — facing us now and in the foreseeable future.
