Natural Sciences

Education in mathematics and sciences provides students with the scientific and analytical methods of thinking and means of exploration to understand the world in which we live. Course work provides students with a thorough grounding in the natural sciences and mathematics. The goal of the natural sciences programs is to educate citizens to make rational decisions in today’s society. Students not seeking a degree in mathematics and the natural sciences are offered a variety of general-interest courses, including courses that fulfill elective and general education requirements. Course work in mathematics and natural science also supports allied health programs and other transfer programs. Courses in mathematics and natural sciences are listed under the following catalog headings: astronomy, biology, chemistry, geology, environmental sciences, mathematics, oceanography, physics and statistics.
