Science Department

Science encompasses many different bodies of knowledge and pervades our everyday life. Through logical, systematic inquiry, a study of science reveals the nature of living organisms, our environment and natural forces at work in the world. COCC offers the lower division courses necessary to complete the first two years of a Bachelor's degree program. Many courses are available for the first two years of pre-medical, pre-dental, physics, chemistry, geology, and math programs. Preparatory courses for such medical-related programs as nursing, medical records, medical technician, massage therapy, vet tech, pharm tech, dental assisting, medical assisting and physical therapy are also available.
