A BSc (Bachelor of Science) is an academic degree that combines general coursework with specialized classes that prepare students with the knowledge and skills to begin a career. A degree can be earned in a variety of subjects and takes an average of four years to complete.
Natural sciences are a scientific branch that deals with observations, understanding and predictions of natural phenomena. It is a diverse field and includes disciplines such as biological science, physics, chemistry, Earth science and astronomy.
Biology students may choose between the Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BS) degree tracks. Both tracks share the same core of biology and supporting courses
The Biology Department at Waldorf University seeks to prepare its students to take on various leadership roles in solving problems facing human societies. This requires that students learn to think critically and analytically – students must be successful not only in the classroom, but in their ability to use the tools of science. To accomplish this, the Department offers students a choice of programs that will prepare them for success either in graduate and professional schools, or for employment directly after graduation. In addition to these programs, the Waldorf Biology Department offers students opportunities that will help them become leaders in their chosen careers. Our alumni enjoy careers in human medicine (e.g., physicians, physical therapists, chiropractors, pharmacists), veterinary medicine, ecology (e.g., conservationists, marine biologists, park rangers), laboratory technology, education, and others....

You have probably recently studied maths at school. You may have learnt formulas and how to apply them, how to draw graphs and how to calculate areas and volumes. How did you know that the formulas would work? Who was the first person to use that formula – and how did they know it would work?
Studying Mathematics at degree-level is about much more than just applying what you already know to a series of problems. It is a creative, investigative subject where you will push the boundaries of what is possible to achieve through thinking and then apply it to the world.
Our Honours course in Mathematics is designed to be intellectually stimulating and vocationally relevant. This course will appeal to students who like to tackle real-world challenges through the intellectual rigour and purity of approach that is inherent in mathematics. The programme will develop your skills in pure and applied aspects of the subject to an advanced level, combining these with training in probability, advanced statistics and data analysis. In your final year of study, you will tackle a piece of independent research, bringing together this comprehensive portfolio of skills to focus upon a research question of your choice. With support from the University’s careers and placements team, the skills and experience derived from this course should be readily transferable to graduate level employment across a range of sectors....

B.S. in Astronomy
Astronomers seek answers to some of the biggest and oldest questions in science: How did the Universe begin? How will it end? What is in the Universe? How do stars, planets, galaxies and black holes form? How do they end? Addressing these questions incorporates physics, mathematics, chemistry, biology, computer science, optics and instrumentation, and even history and philosophy are companion fields. The U.H. Hilo academic astronomy program leverages the astronomy infrastructure of Mauna Kea and the University Park of Science and Technology to provide students with knowledge of astronomy and astrophysics, and training in modern methods of observational astronomy.

Physics majors study the fundamental nature of reality using mathematical models based on experiment, observation, and intuition. If you major in physics, you will study a broad range of topics ranging from the tiniest of subatomic particles to the largest: the universe itself. You will explore concepts as seemingly simple as tossing a ball, and as arcane as what the universe looks like when you travel near the speed of light. As a physics major, your quest to learn the mathematical underpinnings of the nature of reality is the first step toward understanding, and ultimately explaining, this strange and beautiful existence we all inhabit.
