General Sciences Minor

The General Sciences Minor has breadth into the physical sciences which complements the Science (Biology) degree well. The General Science also supports the philosophy of a liberal arts university by exposing the student to a wider variety of disciplines than other minors.  This minor would be beneficial for those students looking towards work in Education, Environmental Sciences, Engineering, or a graduate program in Natural Sciences or Physical Biological Sciences. The General Science minor is not open to students in the Bachelor of Science degree.
