Pembroke Pines, FL 33024
The Science and Wellness Department at South Campus is housed within building 66; a state-of-the-art science building located at 7200 Pines Boulevard in Pembroke Pines, Florida. The department offers courses in Biological Sciences, Physical Sciences, and Wellness which you can apply toward various AA, AS, or Certificate programs. The Associate Dean heads a team of fourteen full-time faculty, over seventy Adjunct faculty, three lab Managers, and many support staff.
The goal of the department is to create a solid foundation that will prepare students to enter upper-division courses in the General Science and Health Science fields. Some students taking BSC2010L and BSC2011L or CHM2210L and CHM2211L will be introduced to research opportunities guided by experienced faculty to obtain real-life experience in research. In collaboration with the Teacher’s Education Program (TEP), the department offers upper-division courses for individuals enrolled in the Bachelor of Science Education Program which qualifies its graduates to teach biology in grades 6-12. The wellness courses introduce and engage the student in wellness activities that will encourage personal wellness and overall health.

Biological science is the study of life and living organisms, their life cycles, adaptations, and environment. There are many different areas of study under the umbrella of biological sciences including biochemistry, microbiology, and evolutionary biology.
Physical Sciences are the sciences concerned with the study of inanimate natural objects, including physics, chemistry, astronomy, and related subjects.
Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life.
Wellness is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth. “…a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
