To write and read competently in a critical and organized manner are necessities in the world of college and work. To perform computations, reason logically, and think independently are also essential skills that will aid the student in every college or career endeavor.

Natural Sciences (8 HOURS)

(A minimum of 4 semester hours of life science AND 4 semester hours of physical science.)

Rationale: The Natural Sciences provide the opportunity for the development of independent, creative, and logical thinking while enhancing one’s understanding of the effects of the sciences upon the individual, society, and the environment. The information gained from studies in the biological and physical sciences is based upon ANC Catalog 2015-16 77 acute observations, experimentation, and arriving at logical conclusions. The decision-making processes that are used daily in coping with life in a modern society are basically those practiced in all science classes. The historical development of this logical process is an integral part of each science class and, as such, provides the individual with a foundation for continued personal growth.

The Humanities also develop appreciation for aesthetic and creative endeavors through active participation in the areas of art, music, and theatre.
