Combined Science, B.S.


Return to Academic Degrees and Programs Return to: Academic Degrees and Programs

This baccalaureate degree provides students with an in-depth study in two science areas. The B.S. in Combined Science degree requires the completion of three segments of course work: 1) the General University Course Requirements (GUCRs), 2) the science/mathematics core requirements, and 3) the combination of two specializations. This major differs from the B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies in Science in terms of the specificity of courses in each specialization. Students desiring more flexibility in course selection should consider the B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies.

This degree prepares students for a variety of positions in industry and government and provides the foundation for graduate study in science or mathematics.

General University Course Requirements: 36-39 credits
