You will be asked to complete two courses in the natural sciences, at least one of which must be a laboratory course.

We live in a world in which scientific and technological questions—about atomic energy, computers, genetics, the environment, or mineral resources—play increasingly important roles. If you do not know something about science, you will be no more than a helpless observer in many of the critical discussions that affect your life.
