Department of Natural Sciences Mission and Goals
The Department of Natural Sciences’ primary mission is to provide quality instruction in the theory and practice common to three major divisions of science (biology, chemistry, and physics) and in selected interdisciplinary areas (biochemistry, earth science, environmental science and studies, and microbiology).
The Department stresses excellence in teaching and the importance of personal interaction in its preparation of students for entry into professional or graduate schools, or into businesses and industries requiring employees skilled in modern laboratory techniques in the natural sciences. It encourages undergraduate participation in research in the pure and applied sciences as a means of nurturing student scientific maturity, of teaching basic research skills, and of generating new knowledge and developing new processes.
The Department also provides a range of courses designed to broadly inform the non-scientist. It offers courses that support degree programs in the Schools of Education, Management, and Engineering. Faculty members engage in a variety of outreach activities to elementary and secondary education, business, and industry in southeastern Michigan.
