Natural Sciences

Students take two degree credit-bearing courses (at least 6 credits) and, in doing so, must meet two goals with courses in two of the following disciplines: physical, biological or environmental sciences.

  • Understand and apply basic principles and concepts in the physical or biological sciences.
  • Explain and be able to assess the relationship among assumptions, method, evidence, arguments, and theory in scientific analysis.
  • Identify and critically assess ethical and societal issues in science.

SEBS Core courses taught each semester are available to view in the Schedule of Classes. After selecting a semester, New Brunswick, and Undergraduate and hitting "Continue", choose the tab on the left labeled "Core Code". The dropdown list will show each of the SEBS Core codes. After selecting one of the options, courses will appear from all departments that fulfill that SEBS Core goal.
