Marine & Natural Sciences Seminar Series

The weekly Roger Williams University Marine and Natural Science Seminar is held every Fall and Spring semester through the division of Marine and Natural Sciences in MNS 200 and/or on Zoom. We invite speakers from within and outside the RWU community to speak on scientific topics including biology, chemistry, physics, math, public health, industry, and science communication & policy. This seminar series also holds events like Meet your Advisor in the Fall and Applying to Graduate School FAQ in the Spring.
