The Science courses are divided into two categories: Life Sciences and Physical Sciences. Students may study a traditional three-year course sequence of Biology, Chemistry, and Physics that is designed to provide students with the fundamentals in each area. Students may also pursue a more specialized focus of study once they complete the departmental prerequisites. Students may approach the course offerings of the department in three possible ways:
1. To satisfy the minimum graduations requirements, students must successfully complete three lab-science courses in Biology, Chemistry, Forensic Science, or Physics.
2. To prepare for college and professional careers in medicine or the sciences, students are advised to enroll in Biology, Chemistry, Life-Science electives, and as many mathematics courses as possible.
3. To prepare for college and professional careers in the Physical Sciences, students are advised to enroll in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and as mathematics courses as possible.
