Natural Sciences Area, BS

Return to Natural Sciences Return to: Natural Sciences

The Natural Sciences area option allows students to meet their individual education needs by developing a major based on courses from several departments within the Natural Sciences Division. The selection of courses should reflect a theme or program that is developed in consultation with an Academic Advisor.

Core Requirements 12 courses (36 credits)

To satisfy the requirements for a Natural Sciences area major, students select one department in which they take five to six courses (15-18 credits) and two other departments in which they take three to four courses (8-12 credits) each for a minimum total of 36 credits. An example program of studies for a student who chose Chemistry as the major department and Biological Sciences and Mathematics as the minor departments is shown below.

Additional Requirements 1 course (3 credits)

After earning 90 credits, all Natural Sciences area majors must take the research course offered in the major area of concentration to fulfill the capstone course requirement.

Total Credits: 39
