Programs offered under the heading of Natural Science emphasize the interrelationships among the several natural science disciplines. They are designed primarily for prospective teachers, but are also of value to anyone seeking careers in such areas as government, environmental law, ecology, or other areas where a broad science background is useful. Two programs are offered: a Bachelor of Science degree major, and a subject matter preparation program for the Single Subject Teaching Credential in Science. Lower division courses in Natural Science (NATS 180-183, 185) and in the Biological Sciences (BIOL 180-181) prepare future elementary school teachers.
Instruction is provided by the faculties of all natural science departments, i.e., Biological Sciences, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Geological Sciences, and Physics and Astronomy, as well as the Department of Mathematics and the Department of Geography and Urban Analysis. Advisement information is available from the Natural Science Coordinator.
Programs for this Program:
• Natural Science, B.S.
• Natural Science Subject Matter Program
