As an Ad Hoc Major
The Department of Natural Sciences offers a pre-professional specialization that enables students to include biology, chemistry, environmental science, and physics courses as part of an arts and sciences ad hoc major.
Students prepare for entry into professional schools of medicine, dentistry, and other health care fields; graduate study in natural sciences; and teaching. Students may combine basic courses in biology, chemistry, environmental science, and physics with advanced electives.
Prospective students are urged to register with the office of the Department of Natural Sciences early in their college careers. Each student will be assigned an individual advisor who will assist in formulating the specific ad hoc major program designed to attain the desired educational objectives.
As a Minor
For the natural sciences minor, students take two courses at the 3000 level followed by a capstone course at the 4000 level. Courses may be chosen from any of the natural sciences offered by this department. A faculty advisor will assist students with selecting appropriate courses for the minor.
