Welcome to the Natural Science department!

Whether you are a current NECC science student, or considering becoming one, we’re here to help and guide you. We have degree programs for you explore in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Environmental Science, and Lab Science. Whether you know science is the right fit for you, or you aren’t certain yet, we are here for you.

The only thing you need to study and work in science is curiosity. So if you find yourself fascinated by science, nature, how things work, figuring things out, then this is the place for you! Even if you think you’re “not a science person.” A science person is simply someone who is excited about science. No particular skills or abilities necessary beyond that; that’s what learning is for.
