Mathematics & Natural Sciences—Ten Credits

Because science and technology profoundly shape the world in which we live, Hope College requires students to take ten credits of mathematics and natural science courses. Students will deepen their understanding of mathematical reasoning and appreciate the usefulness and limitations of mathematical models. Students will also deepen their understanding of the processes of science and the way that science interprets the natural world. Students will “do” science in hands-on contexts in laboratories and through field work.

Whether you are a science major or seeking to become conversant in a general way within science and mathematics will dictate your personal pathway in meeting this requirement. Consult with your advisor as you choose courses.
