General Science

The General Science major offers students a choice from three concentration: Behavioral Science, Chemistry, and Green Technologies, and is designed to provide the student with a broad-based science curriculum with interdisciplinary components for students seeking...

1) certification to teach science at the middle school level, or

2) a broad base of content knowledge and laboratory skills in each of the major scientific disciplines to pursue a science related career.

The Bachelor of Arts degree in General Science program is multi-disciplinary (requires basic mastery of several sciences beyond the introductory level) and enables students to develop skills that relate to a wide variety of topics, ideas, and experiences.

General Science is an appropriate major for students interested in health-related careers, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, and medical technology.  Combined with a second major/minor in English, General Science is an excellent preparation for a writing career in science, technology, or natural history.  In the business world, General Science students can embark on careers in sales, health care administrators, and production when combined with a major/minor in business management or marketing.
