Physical Science

The Physical Science department offers students at Massasoit a variety of courses to choose from in order to fulfill a general education requirement for graduation at Massasoit or four year institution or to further their interest in a specific area of science. These courses range from physics and chemistry to geology, astronomy, meteorology and physical oceanography. With the exception of astronomy each course has both a lecture and a laboratory component that emphasize both the practical, hands-on involvement with the process of science as well as acquiring an understanding of basic scientific concepts. The courses are designed to reinforce the Cross Curriculum Competencies: critical thinking, technological skills, oral communication, quantitative skills, reading, and writing. 

The department also embraces the position of the Access and Disability Resources Office at the college. Students with disabilities who believe that they may need accommodations in the classroom are encouraged to contact Access and Disability Resources at Brockton or Canton, as soon as possible, in order to ensure that such accommodations are implemented in a timely fashion.
