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 or 2 courses (3-5 credits)

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

Note: Courses used to fulfill general education competencies cannot be used for any of the three areas of the Natural Sciences Area major.

Total Credits: 39
