VII. Natural Sciences and Mathematics

Students should engage with the diverse approaches to the natural sciences and mathematics more deeply than a single course from the physical and life sciences would allow. Greater depth of experience can be accomplished by either greater focus on one area, study in a related area, bringing various scientific perspectives to bear upon a single issue or topic, or engaging directly in academically-based activities informed by these perspectives.

In this sector, students broaden their perspective by taking a course in the natural sciences or mathematics that has been approved as a General Education course and that cuts across the two sectors. Other courses approved for this sector will seek a more integrative approach by addressing a problem or topic from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. Still others will combine disciplinary study with community service or activism, constructively and reflectively connecting the theoretical with the actual.
