Science (SCNCE) - (ARCHIVE)

This major provides broad, general training with a background in science. It allows students to prepare for graduate studies in their field of interest. Most graduates of the Science major go on to graduate school in order to obtain employment in research. Other students choose this major because of an educational objective more readily obtained by it than by some specific subject matter.

For the B.A. degree in Science, a minimum of 120 credits is required. A student enrolled in this major must earn at least a grade of C in each 300- and 400-level course.
