Natural Sciences

The Natural Sciences curriculum is designed to fulfill part of the course requirements for entry into professional schools of medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, physical therapy, dental hygiene, x-ray technology or other related health sciences. Natural Sciences is also for students transferring to pursue degrees in biology, microbiology, chemistry, environmental science or related degrees.

Pre-Engineering & Math

The Pre-Engineering Program is designed to prepare students for transfer to a four year college or university in a pre-engineering program, mathematics program, secondary math education program or related field of study. The curriculum includes general education courses, mathematics courses, science courses and support courses. Faculty advisors work closely with students to design a plan of study that meets their educational and career goals.

NEO’s biology and physical science courses are taught in Cunningham Hall. The facility was completely renovated in 2009. The classrooms are set up for traditional classes as well as lab classes. Each classroom accommodates 24 students. Courses taught in Cunningham Hall include Biology, Plant Biology, Zoology, Geology, Physical Science, Physics, Anatomy and Physiology, and the classroom component of Chemistry. The Physical Therapist Assistant program is also housed in Cunningham Hall.

The Osborn Family Laboratory Building was constructed in 2011. The facility houses the two chemistry labs, the microbiology classroom/lab and the Medical Laboratory Technician program. All of our labs are fully equipped with the equipment necessary to support teaching and learning.

Mathematics classes are taught in Shipley Hall and Ables Hall, classroom buildings equipped with projection systems and whiteboards.
