The general science curriculum allows students to design programs with more breadth than traditional science programs. Many modern fields of inquiry (medicine, neuroscience, biophysical science) and K-12 science education encompass several scientific disciplines. The General Science degree provides students interested in graduate work, careers in health sciences, science related business or science education the appropriate broad background in science.

The General Science Program allows pre-health students preparing for careers in medicine, dentistry or related fields to meet professional school admissions requirements while completing a Bachelor of Science degree. General Science, when combined with a second major can work well for students planning careers in science-related business, public relations, and human services. General Science combined with a Master’s degree in education provides excellent training for science education.

  • Have a general working knowledge of science in general and a deeper understanding in at least two fields,
