The Division of Math & Sciences at LSC-University Park offers courses in Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Geology, Math, Physics and Astronomy and are led by dedicated and student-focused faculty. The Associate in Science (AS) degree prepares students to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a bachelorís degree. Our mission is to provide the community college students of Northwest Houston access to an academic foundation that will empower students to acquire, demonstrate, articulate and value knowledge and skills that will support them, as life-long learners, to participate in and contribute to the global world and practice the core values of the school: respect, tolerance & inclusion, and excellence.
The Department of Biology and Environmental Science offers courses for students interested in learning more about the living world with a wide range of options for both science and non-science majors. The study of biology is founded in the scientific method and teaches students to problem solve and think critically. These higher-level skills are valuable assets to employers and make biology students highly marketable.
Unified in student success, the interdisciplinary Department of Chemistry, Geology and Physics offers course content that integrates real-world examples with hands-on use of equipment and instrumentation. Students have the opportunity to work through scientific problems and have access to LSC-University Parkís one-of-a-kind three-story rock wall and outdoor astronomy deck and telescopes.
Being a mathematician or statistician isnít just about solving equations; itís about solving real-world problems in education, engineering, financial services, healthcare and other industries. The LSC-University Park Mathematics Department offers courses in different areas to expose students to the possibilities within the industry.
