The Health and Sciences Division represents more than 40 special discipline and professional areas designed to provide transfer and completion programs in a range of areas that correspond to skills and academic interests relating to people. We might be called the "People Division" because of our special emphasis on courses corresponding to people studies, ranging from anthropology to speech language pathology. The Sciences area provides instruction in the biological sciences, engineering, mathematics, physical science and physical education. Courses and curricula are designed to develop mastery of the scientific method, ability to organize resources toward the solution of specific problems, and unbiased analysis of quantitative data.
We have a diverse faculty representing a wide range of disciplines and programs. Represented are 129 full-time faculty and more than 550 part-time faculty. We have many resources supporting our programs, including extensive specialized equipment, laboratories, and the latest in multimedia delivery systems. Our educational opportunities span the globe through field studies programs, as well as the many international students who attend classes in the Health and Sciences Division.
