BSc (Integrated)

The Bachelor of Science (Integrated) provides a broad science base and integrates more than one area of study. Students must complete two Areas of Specialization listed below. The program is built upon a foundation of Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics. The program allows students to transfer into single-discipline science majors built on a foundation of Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics or, alternatively, to switch from those majors to the BSc (Integrated). This program may be useful to students planning to pursue studies in various post-baccalaureate professional areas. In order to be eligible for entry into a program, students should consult with the appropriate professional school(s) to ensure they have met all requirements. Prior to starting the first year of study, students are strongly encouraged to consult with an appropriate Student Advisor for their anticipated Areas of Specialization.

Areas of Specialization are:?

  • Biology, Ecology, and Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

  • Chemistry, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

  • Computer Science

  • Environmental and Earth Sciences

  • Geography (Science) and GIS

  • Mathematics and Statistics

  • Natural Resources and Forestry

  • Physics

Students enrolled in the Bachelor of Science (Integrated) must successfully complete a total of 120 credit hours including a minimum of 45 credit hours from upper division (300- or 400-level) courses, and not less than 15 credit hours, at any level, of Humanities and Social Sciences courses. Humanities and Social Sciences courses may be selected from among the areas that are considered Humanities and Social Sciences for purposes of the BA (General). Students must ensure completion of course prerequisites before registering in any course.
