Life & Physical Sciences
The Natural Sciences are an exciting and diverse collection of disciplines that seek to better understand the world around us through observation, experimentation, and use of the Scientific Method.
The umbrella of Natural Sciences includes diverse fields encompassing both the life sciences (e.g. Biology, Ecology) and the physical sciences (e.g. Chemistry, Geology, Physics). Advances in medicine, technology, and industry owe much to the natural sciences and future advances in both the understanding of our universe and progress toward solutions to various environmental, social, and economic problems will depend heavily on well-trained scientists and professionals with training in the natural sciences and scientific method.
A degree in any of the natural science disciplines prepares the dedicated student for myriad career opportunities including careers in healthcare, business, drug design and development, toxicology and pharmacology, patent law, research, and teaching.
