Natural Sciences

Natural Science courses in our Evening and Weekend Programs include topics in Environmental Studies, Horticulture, and Natural History Field Studies.

Environmental Studies courses address ethics, politics, U.S. policy, and international law related to environmental issues. Designed with the environmentally conscious in mind, these courses expand knowledge and awareness for those with a passion for protecting the Earth.

Horticulture courses explore seasonal plants and principles of horticulture and landscape design. Participants work with methods and materials that respect natural ecology and the long-term health of the environment.

Natural History Field Studies courses, offered in partnership with the Audubon Naturalist Society, are led by experienced naturalists. Explore our region’s plants, animals, and ecosystems, or study weather phenomena, geology, and more. Many of these courses include scheduled field trips. (Courses not currently scheduled are linked to the Audubon website, where you can find other naturalist activities provided by the Society.)

Courses in Natural Sciences can be applied to Graduate School USA certificate of accomplishment programs in Horticulture, Landscape Design, Natural History Field Studies, and Environmental Studies. See individual program pages for requirements.
