The Department of Natural Sciences at Williams seeks to provide students with an understanding of various scientific disciplines grounded in a thorough understanding of proper use of the scientific method. We work with students to develop critical thinking skills that are essential to a scientist and beneficial in all areas of life. All intelligent and responsible individuals need a basic knowledge of the natural world. The department acquaints students with the value of, and threats to, the environment.
We want to encourage student learning in an atmosphere that will allow students to grow and think both critically and creatively. Our curriculum is designed to prepare students wishing to enter into industry, teaching, or graduate work.
We work individually with students to tailor their program to their specific needs.
