Degree Overview

The B.S. in Science is an interdisciplinary degree that aims to provide a broad, general education in science. The B.S. major includes options in general science and life science. Many students from this major go on to graduate school in some specific science discipline or to professional school in areas such as medicine, dentistry, veterinary, optometry, podiatry, chiropractic, law, or business. Other students seek immediate employment in a wide variety of science-related disciplines, such as sales or service in chemical or drug companies, technical assistants in biological laboratories, research in industry or government, science writing, or education.
