Bachelor of Arts in Biological and Physical Sciences

The Bachelor of Arts degree in Biological and Physical Sciences centers on a traditional core of courses in the natural sciences. Through academic advising and proper course selection, students may choose a curriculum that is uniquely suited to their specific needs in the biological and physical sciences. Students may follow a very specific curriculum or they may elect to pursue a more general science education. Graduates of the program are prepared to continue their education at the graduate level of certain disciplines or to enter a health-related profession such as occupational therapy or physical therapy. They may also choose to work in environmental and earth sciences or in laboratories.
