The Science Department offers a core four-year sequence of study that includes Biology, Chemistry, and Physics, supplemented by courses in Anatomy and Physiology, Astronomy, and Advanced Placement Biology. Courses are provided at various levels of student ability, interest, and preparation. Instruction aims to help students to develop an understanding of the nature of science, analyze the implications of scientific knowledge for the citizen as well as for the researcher, and refine the skills of hypothesis stating and testing that are central to scientific methods. The Department includes the following proficiencies for all students enrolled in science courses:
- To develop the skills of Textbook and Laboratory problem solving and the skills of working cooperatively with others toward the solving of these problems.
- To acquire a knowledge of current theories and scientific research as well as comprehension of the language of the sciences.
- To demonstrate an understanding of the complex interdependence of all aspects of the physical and biological world and the relationship of humans and those systems.
While Graduation Requirements specify that students must successfully complete three years of science, college admissions standards often include additional study and specific laboratory requirements. Students planning to major in one of the sciences or engineering are urged to pursue a rigorous four-year sequence and extensive laboratory experiences.
