College of the Sciences


Welcome to the College of the Sciences

Central Washington University’s College of the Sciences (COTS) is the largest of the four colleges within the university. With a robust thirteen departments and a wide range of marketable degrees to choose from, along with ten uniquely designed interdisciplinary programs, we think you'll find the course of study meant just for you.

In a university the size of CWU, and in a community the size of Ellensburg, you will value the easy access to unique academic opportunities, exciting campus activities, and diverse community goings on.
