Natural Science Program Overview
The Esperanza College Associate of Science in Natural Science at Esperanza College focuses on providing students with a solid academic foundation, including such hands-on experience as lab work and field activities, to continue on to a four-year science degree. The program offers rigorous courses in life and physical sciences, including biology, chemistry, and physics. Students learn about cells, atoms, and molecules to understand larger concepts and laws, such as the biological hierarchy and how macromolecules work or the laws of thermodynamics. They also develop a scientific understanding of present issues, including global warming and becoming better citizens.
The classes are taught by excellent professors in state-of-the-art facilities, enabling students to develop the skills necessary to succeed in the lab and in the classroom. The student’s faith and religious thoughts are also called upon to reflect on scientific realities. Students have the opportunity to discover and articulate how their faith life enlightens their chosen academic pathway. They also take courses in math and the humanities, to further develop their abilities to solve problems and think critically.
Whether your goal is to discover a new medicine or a new source of renewable energy, save a patient, rescue an endangered species or protect the rainforest, a degree in science is your first step.
