Department Philosophy

The Department of Sciences, Mathematics and Business at Pearl River Community College has two primary missions. The first of these is to provide courses to support the programs of study in other academic departments and in the technical division of the college. The second mission is to offer essentially half of the requirements for a bachelor's degree with a major emphasis in biology, business administration, chemistry, computer science, mathematics, physics, engineering, or engineering technology.

Because of the diversity of the department mission, a variety of course levels are offered in each discipline. These courses can be used to satisfy the core requirements for all majors and include special course offerings for elementary education.
