Natural and Physical Science Course Descriptions

Biology

Courses offered in biology prepare students for employment, research, and advanced training in biological sciences; such as zoology, botany, mycology and microbiology and related sub areas. They also provide background for students entering pre-professional studies of medicine, dentistry, optometry, physical therapy, nutrition, pharmacy, and related health science areas. Students are also prepared to enter into the applied biological fields such as animal and plant science, agronomy, food science, and veterinary medicine; as well as related societal areas of forensic science, mortuary science and funeral service. Regardless of their interests, biology students are encouraged to earn college internship credit for experiences in the specialized area of their choice.

Chemistry

Many industrial advancements enjoyed by society are a direct result of the application of chemistry in areas such as agriculture, health, synthetics, and plastics. For such progress to continue, a constant supply of individuals must be educated in chemistry. A background in chemistry will prepare students to enter such fields as medicine, dentistry, research, biochemistry, pharmacology, pharmacy, health fields, and veterinary medicine.

The science department does not offer a major in Chemistry. The department does, however, offer the bachelor's degree in Biology that leads to certification to teach secondary school chemistry in Alabama. See the footnote at the bottom of the BS degree plan in General Biology for further information.

Physical Science/Physics

Modern society is inundated with electrical and mechanical systems. These not only increase the comforts of living but also are greatly utilized in scientific research. To be truly proficient in any scientific field a basic understanding of the principles of physics is necessary. Physics covers not only the areas of electricity and mechanics but also, weather, astronomy, acoustics, nuclear energy and more.
