From anatomy to zoology, our Natural Science courses provide a deeper understanding and appreciation of the role of science in your life. These courses, in biological, physical and health sciences, will help you meet general education requirements or prepare you for your bachelor's degree.

Uncover how the universe began by taking classes in astronomy. One of the oldest sciences, astronomy studies celestial objects that originate outside Earth's atmosphere.

Our biology courses explore life and living organisms, including their structure, function, growth, origin, evolution, distribution, and taxonomy.

Our general and organic chemistry courses and labs can meet class requirements for your chosen four-year science major.

Earth Science
Our Earth Science survey courses give you an overview of the scientific disciplines devoted to studying the planet.

Environmental Sustainability
Our environmental sustainability classes looks at human interaction with the natural and constructed environment. We also offer an A.S. degree in Environmental Science Technology.

We know how mountains, volcanoes and earthquakes are formed by studying geology, the science of the earth's physical structure and substance, its history and its natural processes.

Human Anatomy and Physiology
Most of our health science A.S. degree programs require you take support or major courses in human anatomy and physiology. These can include:

  • BSC 1083 Human Anatomy
  • BSC 1083L Human Anatomy Laboratory
  • BSC 1084C Essentials of Human Anatomy and Physiology
  • BSC 2085 Human Anatomy and Physiology I
  • BSC 2085L Human Anatomy and Physiology I Laboratory
  • BSC 2086 Human Anatomy and Physiology II
  • BSC 2086L Human Anatomy and Physiology II Laboratory

Forecasting the weather begins with meteorology, the study of the Earth's atmosphere. And as technology advances, so will the field of meteorology.

Covering 70 percent of the planet with an average depth of several thousand feet, the world's oceans are a world unto themselves. Through oceanography, you learn about the physical and biological aspects of the oceans.

The most fundamental of all sciences, physics seeks to understand the behavior and structure of matter and serves as a foundation for science majors.
