Programs in the natural sciences are designed to prepare students for living and working in a world where science informs both public and private issues. Science courses aim to provide students with a basic understanding of the discipline and to help students explore its theories, principles, models and reasoning processes; to examine the methods and values of the discipline; and to review the historical and cultural context of the discipline and its relation to the wider world of ideas. Natural sciences courses are offered in the fields of biology, chemistry, geology, environmental science and physics and serve students majoring in biology as well as those seeking to fulfill their general education requirements for graduation.
