ABOUT NATURAL AND PHYSICAL SCIENCE COURSES AT MAYVILLE STATE

Do you need science credits to meet your program’s essential studies requirements? Mayville State University offers Natural and Physical Science online and meets the requirements of many programs.

We are pleased to offer ONLINE labs that are full-contact, non-virtual labs to give you the hands-on experience that helps you to reinforce and retain the content information taught in the lecture. 

Maybe you only need the lecture or only the lab? Not a problem, you can enroll in either or both!  Of course, it is beneficial to take both simultaneously because they are coordinated to work together.

While these courses are “asynchronous” they do still have deadlines that students will need to meet.  You must enroll for a semester term and complete assignments over the duration of the semester.  So, the courses provide structure to help guide the students through the entirety of the course.  You need to meet the deadlines as missed assignments are missed points.
