Department of Natural Sciences
We strive to help all students describe, understand, and ask questions about the natural world.
Natural science students experience hands-on learning through a lab-intensive curriculum, allowing students to gain experimental, analytical, and critical-thinking skills to prepare them for industry-related careers, graduate school, or professions in science education. Our small, student-to-faculty ratio provides students with ample one-on-one interaction with dedicated faculty members and offers individualized support for learning. Our students are introduced to and also have the opportunity to discuss relevant technology, societal advancements, and bioethical issues.
