Science Department

Our goal is to offer diversified science courses that are relevant and provide students the knowledge and experience to pursue further studies in the sciences or simply participate in a modern society dominated by science and technology. Our emphasis is on an understanding of modern scientific methodologies, including current methods of scientific experimentation, as well as up-to-date laboratory techniques and equipment. A particular effort is made to offer transferable courses for the various vocational programs at SCC and to science programs of the regional academic institutions throughout the Northwest.

The Science Department at SCC seeks to encourage an attitude of discovery and critical analysis along with a genuine interest in the sciences. We strive to offer a wide variety of introductory and second-year college science courses that not only challenge students' traditional views of science, but build the scientific skills that create a sound foundation which students will use when viewing the world around them.
