An alternative to a Bachelor of Science in a specific discipline is the interdisciplinary Bachelor of Science in General Science. To earn a Bachelor of Science in General Science, you'll take at least eight hours of course work in each of:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Computer Information Sciences
  • Mathematics and Physics/Astronomy.
    • These hours must be in courses that would count toward a major in each of the respective departments.

An additional 20 hours of course work that would be appropriate for majors in the listed departments must be completed. Of those, at least 12 hours must be in upper division courses.

Those seeking a General Science degree should meet with the chairperson of the Natural Science and Mathematics division no later than their third semester to declare a General Science major.
