Integrated Core Science (CORS)

The Core Integrated Science (CORS) classes seek the following objectives:

  • Strengthen student understanding of the methodology of science so as to foster logical thinking about and the ability to make complex scientific and social decisions.
  • Increase awareness of the nature and limitations of scientific knowledge.
  • Emphasize the impact of science on society and the impact of society on science.
  • Consider the ethical dilemmas and moral consequences of research that may confront the scientist.
  • Create an understanding of the differences between belief and scientifically testable or validated results.
  • Place scientific advances and issues in a historical context.
  • Stress collaborative work and problem-solving techniques in providing the student with the opportunity to become actively engaged in conducting science.

The course directly emphasizes and is integrated with the five University-wide Learning Outcomes: learn and integrate, think and create, communicate, clarify purpose and perspective, practice citizenship.

Core Science classes carry three credits and fulfill a Natural Science requirement with no additional lab attached.

CORS course descriptions are found on the Class Schedule Page, under CORS.
