Integrated Science Degree Program

Bachelor of Science (BS) in Integrated Science
Degree Options:
  • Major (BS)
  • Major (BA)

The integrated science degree program capitalizes on a range of academic programs allowing majors to pursue breadth and depth in a handful of disciplines that will foster interdisciplinary awareness and facilitate many graduate school, professional school, or career opportunities. Additionally, this program will appeal to those interested in pursuing health-related careers that draw on experience in related academic areas.

The program offers both a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Science degree. The B.A. option has a little more flexibility within the major area coursework, and in the number of available elective hours. The B.S. degree plan includes significant coursework in natural science disciplines, but adds enough social and behavioral science to round out students’ perspectives as preparation for further study or entering careers upon graduation
