Mission and Vision

The Natural Sciences Program is a multidisciplinary undergraduate program within the Faculty of Science. It offers students the flexibility to tailor their degree around their scientific interests and the opportunity to gain a big picture perspective on science as they build collaborative competencies.

For natural sciences students with an energy science concentration, we offer energy science content courses, including the fundamentals of nuclear energy production and geothermal energy.

Additionally, students outside of our program can benefit from our multidisciplinary courses; our science-writing course serves geology and chemistry majors, and our course in the nature of science serves non-science students. These courses have been collaboratively built and involve a variety of high impact teaching practices. Experiences in these classes are informed by current scientific research.
