Department Philosophy & Goals

The Science Department strives to respect each student and recognizes her need for intellectual, spiritual and social development. The Science Department helps each student foster an appreciation of the physical phenomena of the world in which we live as well as an understanding of the biological world, her place in it and her responsibility to it.

An important aspect of science is the scientific way of thinking. This involves approaching problems through an organized, structured process which not only helps solve technical problems, but also produces new ideas and concepts. As a student moves through the science course sequence from freshmen to senior year, she will develop her skills of observation, analysis, collaboration, critical reading and thinking, and technical writing.
