School of Sciences
The School of Sciences is composed of 43 full-time and 111 part-time faculty. The faculty are known for their quality of instruction, commitment to the educational process, and concern for their students. It is not unusual to see students regularly return after graduation to share their latest successes with special faculty members. The School's curriculum includes courses in: Anthropology, Biology, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Engineering, General Science, Geography, Geology, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Horticulture, Human Services, Mathematics, Meteorology, Physics, Psychology, Social Sciences, Sociology, and Water and Wastewater.
Certificates are offered in Biotechnology, Horticulture, Human Services and Water/Wastewater.
AA/AS degrees in Biology, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Ethnic Studies, General Science, Human Services, Mathematics, Physics, Psychology, Social Sciences, and Sociology, and a new AS-T in Mathematics.
Our curriculum satisfies the math, social and behavioral science, and natural science general education requirements of other AA degree and transfer programs as well. Students regularly transfer to UC Davis and UC Berkley as well as other state of California and private four-year institutions.
Courses are available day and evening at the Fairfield campus, the Vallejo and Vacaville Centers, and at Travis AFB.
The MESA program is an integral part of the Math & Science program for many students. This program provides tutoring, workshops and industry and professional meeting opportunities for students that are eligible.
The Ethnic Studies Program provides students with an opportunity to gain a greater understanding of minority groups in American society. One highlight of the program is the Enlightenment Series which provides intellectually stimulating lectures and programs for the campus and community.
Our faculty and staff are dedicated to providing you with a stimulating learning environment and to helping you make your educational experience a productive and enjoyable one.
