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.
