Natural Science Minor
Science in the 21st century is no longer easily compartmentalized, the physical sciences of chemistry and physics and the life sciences of biology and ecology have merged. Foundations of Science at NYU Abu Dhabi provides a fundamental yet rigorous overview of science, focusing on the interrelationships among physics, chemistry, and biology. The minor in the Natural Sciences introduces students to energy, forces, and matter, the essentials of atomic structure and basic chemical reactions, and the applications of these concepts to cell biology and basic ecology.
