Science at Durham Tech
Taking a science class isn’t just about meeting a degree requirement. It can also give you a deeper understanding — and appreciation — of life and the world (and universe) we live in. Whether your goal is to transfer to a university or you’re a visiting student taking a class “for fun,” our dedicated faculty and staff are here to assist you.
Many of our courses are offered in an online or hybrid format in addition to our traditional, on-campus setting. For students who are especially interested in the sciences, we have a very active Science Club and host several seminars each semester covering a variety of subjects.
