Program Description

Math & Sciences programs' primary purpose is to engage students in learning and understanding pure and applied mathematics, algorithms, and/or scientific thinking.  We define scientific thinking as a pattern of following the scientific method using quantitative, evidence-based reasoning and the formulation of testable explanations and predictions about the universe and our existence within it.

Biochemistry

MRS, mRS

The Biochemistry minor provides students with a foundational knowledge of general chemistry as related to biological systems and then progressing to learn organic chemistry and finishing with biochemistry.  This minor is rigorous and lab intensive and it is recommended for students with strong interest and aptitude for math and lab-based science. Intro course: CHEM 105/L

 

Biology (minor) mRS The Biology minor provides students with a general foundation in cell and molecular, organismal, and ecology, evolution, and population biology. Students will participate in additional advanced study in biological disciplines that are self-selected. Students will also learn basic biological laboratory methods and techniques. This minor is rigorous and lab intensive and it is recommended for students with strong interest in Biology. Intro course: BIOL 112/L

Chemistry mRS The Chemistry minor provides students with a general chemistry foundation, and then expands into organic and, if desired, analytical chemistry.  This minor is rigorous and lab intensive and it is recommended for students with strong interest and aptitude for math and lab-based science. Intro course: CHEM 105/L
Chemistry, Intro to mRS (to be posted soon) The Introduction to Chemistry minor provides students with a general chemistry foundation and expands to let the student choose topics in chemistry that interests them. Labs are optional.  Students can take only lectures to learn about the science of chemistry, and if they wish to gain hands-on experience they could also take labs.  Intro course: CHEM 105/L or CHEM 100 if no prior chemistry

Computer Science MRS, mRS  
Conservation Biology mRS (to be posted soon) The Conservation Biology minor provides students with a foundational understanding of biology, ecology, and conservation sciences. Students will study the processes and natural laws that govern biological communities and how resources are utilized, managed, and conserved. Intro Course: BIOL 100

Marine Biology, Intro to

mRS (to be posted soon)

The Introduction to Marine Biology minor will introduce students to foundational concepts in marine biology, oceanography, and Pacific natural history. Students will study how chemical and physical processes in the ocean govern and affect biological communities.  Intro course: BIOL 100
Nutritional Science, Intro to

mRS (to be posted soon)

The Introduction to Nutritional Science minor will provide students first with a foundation in human health, chemistry, and biology followed by a deeper understanding of human physiology, behavior, and nutrition. Intro courses:  CHEM 101 or 105, BIOL 100 or 112, HLTH 115 or EXS 270

Physics, Intro to

mRS (to be posted soon)

The Introduction to Physics minor is designed for students who desire to learn introductory classical and modern physics.   The three main courses, Physics 121, 220, and 221, are calculus-based.  Intro course: If a student has already taken physics in high school and has the mathematics prerequisites, he/she should begin with Physics 121; otherwise the student should begin with Physics 100, Conceptual Physics.
