Natural Sciences at Babson
The natural science program at Babson is designed to give students an integrated science experience through theme-based courses rather than traditional discipline-based courses. The program is offered at three levels: foundation courses provide broad exposure to the basic principles of physical and biological sciences; intermediate courses emphasize the further development of the tools for research through the examination of science and technology; finally, advanced courses add depth to topics from previous levels and introduce new topics into the curriculum.
Beginning in the fall of 2002, students are required to take one foundation course and one intermediate course. Advanced electives are open to all students who have successfully completed the intermediate program.
As the Babson curriculum expands to include concentrated studies in specific areas of interest, the Natural Sciences group is pleased to announce the creation of a concentration in Science & Society. Specifically, this concentration explores the connection between science issues that have a strong societal impact.
