Scientific approaches are essential to addressing many of the issues facing our world. Students should engage in evidence-based problem-solving that explores processes in the physical world. This involves the abilities to develop hypotheses, make empirical observations, analyze data and evaluate results within the context of a theoretical framework of a scientific field. Courses in this Mode will engage students in how scientific knowledge is produced and in the ways that this knowledge intersects with society. The following courses have officially been given the Mode D, Scientific Inquiry and Analysis, designation.
