Science 

 


Does exploring the mysteries and vast frontiers of the universe, its unknown origins, its potential life forms, and strange new worlds interest you more than just watching it as a science fiction movie? Were you the kid who thought that one day you might come up with a cure for cancer? Were you the kid that built mighty bridges from LegosTM and Tinker ToysTM dreaming that one day you would be designer of tomorrow’s gleaming sky scrapers? Were you fascinated by the Jurassic Park movies? Were you the one that was always wrapping your dog’s leg with bandages as you pretended to be that good ol’ country veterinarian? Students who major in science are individuals inspired to understand why some aspect of the natural world functions the way it does and who marvel at the complexity and simplicity of nature. The science degree at DCC prepares students for careers requiring a firm foundation in mathematics and basic science while ensuring that graduates have a firm understanding of humanities and social science disciplines as well. If your future career plans include medicine, nursing, architecture, laboratory research, science education, or environmental studies, then the science degree can be tailored to help you achieve your goals.
