The Parkland Department of Natural Sciences teaches you
about the nature and practice of science, with courses in
chemistry, physics, astronomy, meteorology, geology, biology,
evolution, environmental biology, microbiology, kinesiology, forensic
science, and human anatomy and physiology. You can take many of these courses online. All of these disciplines address the
increasingly important issues of scientific literacy and how science
relates to our society.
Besides serving you with
preparatory, career, and transfer-level courses, Natural Sciences
also takes an active role in community activities and
programs by hosting an annual Science Fair for central Illinois middle
and high school students; offering noncredit courses through
Parkland’s Community Education department; and housing the Institute for Science Education, which
produces the Parkland television channel’s series Surrounded by
Science. This department also includes the Parkland Fitness Center and
the William M. Staerkel Planetarium (second largest in Illinois), both
of which are used regularly by students and the community.
Parkland College offers more than 100 associate degree, transfer, or certificate programs of study designed to meet the diverse educational needs of our district.
