The Liberal Arts with an Emphasis in Math and Science degree provides an area of emphasis for students that wish to develop a broad knowledge base while focusing on core mathematics and scientific skills useful for their intended transfer major. Natural science courses examine the physical universe, including its life forms, structure and natural phenomena that govern the universe. Mathematics course emphasize the development of mathematical and quantitative reasoning skills beyond the level of intermediate algebra, developing a quantitative framework for analysis of scientific principles. Students will gain comprehension of the integrated nature of mathematics and the sciences and will be able to execute experimental methods, assessment and interpretation of scientific phenomena.
Transfer majors appropriate for this area of emphasis include, but are not limited to: Biochemistry, Biology, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Earth Science, Ecology, Genetics, Geology, Geosciences, Health Science, Natural Science, Physical Science, Physics, Physiology and pre-professional majors including Pre-Dental, Pre-Medical, Pre-Physical Therapy and Pre-Veterinary. Students should consult the catalog of their intended transfer university for any local requirements in addition to those earned through this degree and contact a West Hills College Lemoore counselor for further information or assistance.
