Natural sciences at SUNY Cobleskill consist of all major fields in the sciences: astronomy, biology, chemistry, geology, and physics. Especially strong are the biology and chemistry sequences. Students wishing to go into research science education, or any science-related field, are encouraged to concentrate their studies in this science concentration. The concentration is analytical, particularly good for strengthening analytical, critical thinking and research skills. As students in Natural Sciences fulfill many of their basic general education requirements, they have the flexibility to change majors without losing credits. State-of-the-art facilities give more hands-on experience in laboratory settings than most four-year institutions.
