The purpose of the Natural Science program is to provide an accessible education in science for the non-science student.
In an era when science and technology impinges upon virtually every aspect of life, it is important that a well educated university student will have had some experience in the sciences. This need not involve “in depth” studies of any particular specialty, since there is also merit in learning about the manner in which science is (and has been) carried out, and the way in which scientists are currently trained to think and work.
Courses are designed for students who have little science or mathematical background. A willingness and enthusiasm for learning about how science explains the intriguing physical world around us is the only prerequisite!
