The anwers to the fundamental questions concerning the workings of the world have and will continue to yield to reasoning directed by the scientific method. Science coursework involves learning those logical skills in addition to examining what concepts have already been elucidated.
The guiding philosophy of the Science Department directs students to make observations about the workings of the natural world and then to develop hypotheses about these observations. The courses offered extend beyond the traditional science curriculum to give students opportunities to explore diverse subjects.
