General Science


Mission Statement

The General Science minor is designed to provide the student with broad experiences within the science disciplines of Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Natural Science. The minor program provides coursework that complements several of the major programs. If Biology is selected as a major and General Science is the minor, then additional coursework from the other science areas is to be selected to meet the credit hour requirements of the program.



The Kidd Math/Science opened in 1985. With an award winning masonry design, the center’s front doors open to a glass atrium with live plants & a trickling pond. A spacious lobby follows with comfortable studying facilities. Our center houses three large chemistry labs, three biology labs, one physics lab, one computer lab, lecture rooms, faculty offices and a large bent glass greenhouse that enhances the view of our campus. McKenzie Hall opened in 1997 providing math/science students along with the nursing students’ two large lecture halls, a variety of lecture rooms, an anatomy lab, three computer labs, faculty offices and a conference room with a beautiful view of campus and the surrounding landscape.
