Science

  • Program Overview

    The Science curriculum is designed for those students who wish to get a broad background in the sciences. Students may choose a concentration from the fields of Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Mathematics, or Physics. The curriculum may also serve the needs of students whose career objectives are not yet definite or for the student whose career objectives are defined but are not completely satisfied by the suggested departmental programs. Students cannot declare science as a major after attaining 100 credits in a previous major without director's permission.

    The curriculum in Science allows for the completion of the Liberal Studies Core, 60 credit hours of studies in the sciences and mathematics, and twenty-nine credit hours of electives to devote toward the student's educational goal. The student must however earn a minimum of twenty-four credits in some one field of the sciences or mathematics and have a minimum of 8 credits in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and six credits in Earth Science/ Environmental Science and Math.
