At the Faculty of Natural Sciences students can study mathematics and science, to become both teachers and scientists. In-service teachers can attain degrees in pedagogy and natural sciences.
The faculty has been very successful in obtaining projects related to the professional development of teachers and interdisciplinary and inquiry-based learning and problem solving. For example, within the project DISCI (Discover the World of Science) more than 120 students from schools attended courses in mathematics and science. As part of the European projects "A-CENTRUM for the 21st Century" and "prirodovedec.sk" teachers received training. Between 2006 and 2008, 557 teachers attended the training courses. The faculty also organizes biannual open days for students.
Most faculty members participate regularly in (inter)national conferences and publish papers. They are also experienced in the organisation of conferences and participate in different (inter)national networks.
