Where you can learn:
A broad multidisciplinary field that encompasses the parts of exact, natural, economic and social sciences that are used in the practice and understanding of agriculture.
The cultivation of animals, plants, fungi, and other life forms for food, fiber, biofuel, drugs and other products used to sustain and enhance human life.
The study of life and living organisms, including their structure, function, growth, evolution, distribution, and taxonomy.
The composition, properties and behavior of matter.
The study of solid Earth, the rocks of which it is composed, and the processes by which they change.
The study of processes and patterns in the natural environment like the atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, and geosphere, as opposed to the cultural or built environment, the domain of human geography.
The study of marine organisms and ecosystem dynamics; ocean currents, waves, and geophysical fluid dynamics; plate tectonics and the geology of the sea floor; and fluxes of various chemical substances and physical properties within the ocean and across its boundaries.
The physical and biological sciences to the study of the environment, and the solution of environmental problems.
The natural science that involves the study of matter and its motion through space and time, along with related concepts such as energy and force.
The study of celestial objects, the physics, chemistry, mathematics, and evolution of such objects, and phenomena that originate outside the atmosphere of Earth, including supernovae explosions, gamma ray bursts, and cosmic background radiation.
