The Department of Natural Sciences offers a wide variety of high quality introductory and second year college science courses to science and non-science majors through formal classroom instruction, laboratory exercises and directed study with the intent to prepare each student for advancement in their field of study. It is our hope that our students will learn to appreciate science as a means of acquiring knowledge; scientific knowledge being the cumulative result of applying logic to sensory data for the purpose of developing theories that explain natural phenomena. We strive to challenge student views of science and at the same time build the scientific skills that create a sound foundation which students will use when viewing the world around them.
The Natural Sciences Department promotes scientific inquiry that will enhance the learner's ability to function within a scientifically advancing society.
