Hands-on Science Education
Each Colorado Mountain College campus focuses on special areas in science for our Associate of Science two-year degree program. Timberline Campus emphasizes biology, chemistry and environmental concerns. Spring Valley is equipped for chemistry and physics courses and also emphasizes biology and geology. Physics and biology are strong at Alpine Campus, which is equipped with a science lab for both. These campuses also offer classes in many other scientific subjects. Summit Campus offers this degree with a range of science and math courses.
Networked computer labs provide current hardware, software and broadband internet connection for our Associate of Science degree program.
Outside the classroom, the Rocky Mountain West is your science laboratory. You might study geology in the Colorado San Juan Mountains or in the Grand Canyon, biology on a mountainside with a herd of bighorn sheep, or astronomy on a clear mountain night. Field trips like these are offered frequently.
Science teachers at Colorado Mountain College enjoy showing students how science works in the world around them, not just on the chalkboard.
