Test, question, discover, and work collaboratively with a group of peers who share your curiosity. By studying the sciences at SPSCC, you will be a part of small lectures led by faculty who are excited about teaching and their area of expertise. Our students use more equipment, perform more dissections, and work with more projects than many classes at 4-year institutions.

What’s different at SPSCC?

Get a taste of real research. Students have the opportunity to participate in SPSCC’s undergraduate research program, collaborating with local agencies and organizations on important projects that directly impact our community and ecosystem. You will obtain relevant, hands-on experience with real science before the graduate level – an invaluable stepping stone to a future career in the sciences, where employers typically seek real-world experience with the equipment and processes of modern research.

Careers in the Sciences

Because science is such a wide field, a large variety of careers is possible for successful graduates with 4-year degrees with science majors. The Bureau of Labor statistics predicts faster-than-average growth for science jobs that focus on energy and the environment, in response to ongoing issues surrounding climate change.
