All students are required to complete a minimum of 3 credits in Science in order to graduate.
The Science Department offers a range of courses in the biological and physical sciences. These courses stress the development of logical problem solving skills and analysis through experimentation in the lab, independent work, student presentations, and critical writing. Although increasing numbers of our students pursue careers in science, a primary goal of the Science Department is to give all students an appreciation of the importance of science in their daily lives and an understanding of the potentials, limitations, and social responsibilities associated with current developments in science. Students will become aware of the biological and physical world around them, its effects on their lives, and their role in using scientific knowledge to preserve the environment and to participate in the events and issues that will affect them in society in the future.
