The Natural Sciences program offers a broad and interdisciplinary foundation in the sciences: biology, biochemistry, chemistry, forensic sciences and physics. You will learn a skills to research, evaluate and analyse information as well as the ability to work methodically and accurately.
Hands-on learning is so central to what we do, we’ve built service-learning projects into our curriculum, giving students the opportunity to apply the knowledge they’ve learned in real-world settings.
Upon completion of the A.S. undergraduate degree in Natural Sciences, students will be able to:
- Carry out the scientific method by collecting, analyzing and interpreting data using appropriate mathematical and statistical tools.
- Communicate scientific knowledge and principles clearly and effectively.
- Perform laboratory, field or computationally-based practical scientific investigations safely, ethically and effectively.
- Apply fundamental scientific concepts and techniques to evaluate and formulate solutions to issues requiring adaptation and/or change.
- Two semesters of Chemistry (100 or 200 level) with Laboratory
- Two semesters of Biology (100 or 200 level) with Laboratory
- Completion of the Track B, D or E Mathematics requirements
- A first year seminar course in the discipline of your choice:
- BI 100, DS 100, HP 190, ENV 100 or FS 230
