General Science

The general science major seeks to prepare graduates who have a breadth of basic knowledge in biology, chemistry, and physics.  The major emphases both a broad classroom experience and the development of a wide range of laboratory skills.  Students pursuing a general science major interact closely with faculty from a wide range of disciplines, benefitting from their diverse experiences and training.  To complete the major, eight credit hours are required in each area of specialization (biology, chemistry and physics), and an additional eight credit hours of science classes are required at the 3000 or 4000 level.
