Program Student Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the program, students will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate an understanding of the methods scientists use to explore natural phenomena including observation, hypothesis development, measurement and data collection, experimentation, evaluation of evidence, and employment of mathematical analysis. (SUNY Gen. Ed. outcome #1)
  2. Analyze ethical dilemmas raised by science and technology, attempt to identify personal values that affect how one thinks about these dilemmas, and consider diverse perspectives in the process.
  3. Demonstrate application of scientific data, concepts, and models in one of the natural sciences. (SUNY Gen. Ed. Outcome #2)
  4. Demonstrate the ability to create, interpret, and analyze graphs and charts that communicate quantitative or relational information.
  5. Show competence in the following quantitative reasoning skills and be able to :
    1. Interpret and draw inferences from mathematical models such as formulas, graphs, tables, and schematics.
    2. Represent mathematical information symbolically, visually, numerically, and verbally.
    3. Use arithmetical, algebraic, geometric, and statistical methods to solve problems.
    4. Estimate and check mathematical results for reasonableness, determine alternatives, and select optimal results.
    5. Recognize the limits of mathematical and statistical methods. (SUNY Gen. Ed. outcome: Mathematics)
  6. Use computer (or other appropriate) technology to collect data; use computer (or other appropriate) technology to represent data; use computer (or other appropriate) technology to analyze data and /or to solve numerical or conceptual problems.
