“Science is not only a disciple of reason but, also, one of romance and passion.” – Stephen Hawking
Here’s the Scientific Method at work:
Transfer is not always the goal, but transfer resources are available for students interested in applying to senior institutions.
Although general requirements may be transferred from other institutions, specific math and science requirements must be fulfilled at NOVA.
You don’t have to wear a long, white coat to be a scientist. (Although you can if you want.) Careers in scientific fields are varied, stimulating, and well-compensated.
The variety of programs at NOVA reflect the diversity of paths within the Physical & Life Sciences. Find one that suits you.
The curriculum is designed for persons who are interested in a professional or scientific program and who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a baccalaureate degree program with a major in one of the following fields: agriculture, biology, chemistry, pre-dentistry, forestry, geology, home economics, nursing, oceanography, pharmacy, physics, physical therapy, pre-medicine, science education, or mathematics.
