Argonne ESRP Jan 2013Physics students, who will be working on independent research at Argonne, visit the lab for the first time.
The Science Department believes that a certain degree of familiarity with science is necessary for today’s world. The sequence of courses may vary depending upon one’s interests and needs. There are courses available for all levels of competence ranging from 400 level sections for more advanced students to 200 level classes for students needing additional support and assistance.
The department offers courses which are sequential in nature and prepare students for college in the biological and physical sciences. Most college admissions criteria include a minimum of at least three credits in laboratory science. Students who are planning careers in science, health, or technical areas should definitely have a three if not a four year foundation in Science. The science department staff and the counselor will assist the student in course selection each year.
