The UCF College of Sciences is the largest academic college of the University of Central Florida located in Orlando, Florida, USA.[2] The dean of the college is Michael Johnson, Ph.D.[3]

The College of Sciences was established in October 2005 after the division of the former College of Arts & Sciences into two separate colleges.[4] It consists of two divisions: the Division of Natural Sciences and the Division of Social and Behavioral Sciences. The Division of Natural Sciences is home to the National Center for Forensic Science, while the division of Social and Behavioral Sciences includes the Nicholson School of Communication, one of the largest schools of communication in the nation.[5] The college is also home to the Lou Frey Institute of Politics and Government. In 2007, the college completed construction of a Psychology Building and the second phase of a new Physical Sciences Building is currently under construction.
