The faculty is committed to providing a learning environment in which students are exposed to a variety of teaching methods and active learning experiences. 

Mathematics

The Mathematics Department supports the College mission by (1) providing general education courses in mathematics for transfer programs and career programs and (2) providing developmental mathematics courses that prepare students for college level mathematics. The focus is on facilitating learning experiences so students can maximize their understanding of mathematics in an accessible and supportive environment.  Through introductory courses, opportunities are provided for students to learn the basic skills of mathematics. Through upper level courses, opportunities are provided for students to expand their foundations in mathematics and to meet the requirements of their major areas of study. In all courses, opportunities are provided for students to learn effective use of mathematics in their daily lives.

Physics, Physical Science

The Department of Physical Science strives to develop in its students a comprehensive grasp of the principles of Physics and to generate opportunities for optimized learning of Physical Science concepts through interdisciplinary interactions. We offer high quality learning experiences that include a variety of courses appropriate for a diverse student body.  Course offerings include: physical science, geology, meteorology, astronomy, climatology, and physics courses.

Computer Information Systems Technology

The Department of Computer Engineering Technology is committed to meeting the needs of the students through excellence in teaching. Department courses are designed to provide students with the knowledge, ability, skills, and the critical thinking (deductive reasoning) they will need to enter the modern today’s workplace. Students complete an intensive study of hardware/software subjects, and related skills in this program. The program offers a pathway for students pursuing a baccalaureate degree or a vocational program for students wishing to seek more immediate employment in the computer field. In addition, a one-year certificate is granted for students wishing to enhance their career opportunities in the computer field.
