Minimum Credits for a B.S. in General Science: 120
For a student whose first Mathematics course at Montana Tech is calculus, these additional courses would most likely be M 273 and M 274. In addition, the B.S. in General Science requires that the student complete the requirements for a minor in two of the following areas: Biology; Chemistry; Computer Science; Geosciences; Mathematics; Professional & Technical Communication. Seminar must be taken in one of the two areas in which the student is obtaining a minor.
A Bachelor of Science degree in General Science with Honors is available. Students with a GPA of 3.50 (a minimum of 30 credits must have been earned at Montana Tech) or higher must apply for admission to the General Science Steering Committee in the 4th semester of the General Science program. Honors students must complete and orally defend a formally written undergraduate thesis (of at least 3 and preferably 6 credits) based on research or a special project. Honors students must present the work on which the thesis is based at an approved forum.
