The study of Science helps students understand the world around them. Students participate in activities designed to inform them about the traditional science disciplines of biology, chemistry, earth science, environmental science, health sciences, neuroscience, physics and space sciences and the emerging sciences including biotechnology, green chemistry, nanotechnology, and synchrotron science.
