butterfly2015-1-636Department of Natural Science

The Department of Natural Science seeks to empower students with a broad knowledge base in the natural sciences integrated into the concept of a Comanche-Centered Education. Students will learn the historical basis, social context, and scientific methodology of each of the major divisions of Natural Science along with science content knowledge. The degree offers four separate concentrations in Natural Science: Allied Health, Biological Science, Physical Science, Mathematics, and Pre-Nursing. The degree strengthens the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM curriculum) learning throughout the curriculum offering students an opportunity successfully complete their degrees and pursue a STEM-related career. Students majoring in Natural Science must complete 45-46 credit hours in general education and 18 hours in Natural Science selecting one area of concentration. Refer to the General Education requirements.
