Overview

The natural sciences encompass a broad field of study focused on the natural phenomena of the physical world, including the earth, the atmosphere and space.

Careers in the natural sciences are in demand, as the need for trained engineers, scientists and technicians continues to grow. Strong analytical, mathematical and computer skills are a must.

 

Biology

Biological Sciences


Biology studies living organisms and fundamental life processes that form the basis for careers in healthcare, research, teaching and related fields. Begin studies toward a bachelor's degree in general or molecular biology, botany, ecology, fisheries, genetics, marine science, soil science, wildlife management or zoology.

Chemistry

Chemistry


Chemistry explores matter and the basic properties and processes that surround us. Prepare for advanced studies and to work in a laboratory, manufacturing, research, management, environmental services and related fields. Analysts and technicians assist scientists in general lab work or process control. Students can also specialize in chemistry education.

Earth Sciences

Earth Sciences


Knowledge about the planet we inhabit, the surrounding universe and the natural forces that impact our world adds value to our daily lives and provides the basis for interesting careers in a broad range of disciplines: astronomy, earth sciences, geography, geology, meteorology and oceanography. Begin studies for an advanced degree leading to positions with government agencies or private industry as an independent consultant, teacher, or researcher.

Environmental Science

Environmental Science


Today's environmental problems call for people who are educated in more than one discipline, highly trained in scientific and technical skills, and aware of the ecological, political, economic, and social dimensions of environmental decisions. The Associate in Science-Transfer (AS-T) degree in Environmental Science provides a foundation in basic physical, biological, and social sciences, and also addresses the human element in environmental issues. This curriculum prepares students to transfer and complete a BS or BA in an Environmental Science field for subsequent graduate study in MS, PhD, and law degree programs and careers in government agencies or the private sector.

Strong analytical, mathematical and computer skills are a must.
