The academic mission of the Science Department at North Central Texas College is to provide a quality education for students enrolled in academic transfer courses in biology, and chemistry. The department is staffed with highly-qualified, veteran instructors with a diverse range of teaching methodologies. Courses are taught through traditional classroom lecture, hands-on classroom labs and most recently, with online classes. Our small student/teacher ratio assures that students receive personalized attention in the classroom. Class schedules are designed to meet the needs of both full-time and part-time students.


Our main focus is to enhance the educational experience of the North Central Texas College student by providing a variety of science courses designed for transfer to four-year institutions.
