Mission

The mission of the School of Sciences is to provide student-centered learning in pure and applied sciences through effective teaching, service, and experiential learning opportunities. The School of Sciences is dedicated to preparing students with problem-solving, critical thinking, and scientific literacy skills required to pursue meaningful careers, further education, or meet general education and program requirements in other majors. Students graduating from the School of Sciences will be lifelong learners with the ability to make positive contributions in their communities through evidence-based practices and scientifically grounded knowledge.

Degrees

Courses in the School of Sciences can be taken in various areas: natural sciences, mathematics, computer science, health sciences, and informatics. The general studies program is also housed in the School of Sciences. Course descriptions and specific degree requirements for each area follow after a general discussion of curricula and degrees.

The School of Sciences offers several Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degrees, as well as Bachelor of General Studies degree.  These degrees are four-year undergraduate degrees requiring 120 credit hours of coursework. Students wishing a greater emphasis on their major will likely opt to earn a B.S. degree in their discipline. The B.S. degrees follow the campus-wide general education curriculum. On the other hand, students wishing a greater emphasis on courses outside the School of Sciences will likely opt to earn a B.A. degree in their selected discipline. The B.A. degrees follow the general education requirements established by the School of Humanities and Social Sciences and the School of Sciences, which has a stronger emphasis on the social sciences and humanities than the campus-wide general education curriculum. However, it also meets the campus-wide general education curriculum. The specific general education requirements for the Bachelor of Arts degrees differ from those required for Bachelor of Science degrees. Thus, students must work closely with an academic advisor to ensure that the appropriate general education courses are taken along with the courses required for their major.  The Bachelor of General Studies degree offers a flexible program that consists of a core of arts and sciences courses and a wide range of electives. The BGS degree follows the campus-wide general education curriculum.

In addition to the bachelor’s degrees, the School of Sciences offers minors in biology, chemistry, coaching, computer sciences, environmental and earth sciences, health education and promotion, informatics, mathematics, nutritional science, physics, and sustainability. Minors in areas from different Schools or units on campus can also be completed. Please consult an advisor for additional information. The School of Sciences also offers collaborative online graduate certificates in biology, chemistry, and mathematics. 

The unique nature and flexibility of the School of Sciences programs enable students to tailor their degree selection to focus their studies in a particular field of interest, thus preparing themselves for a specific career or graduate school objective.

Through majors in the School of Sciences, a student may complete all of the pre-professional requirements for medicine, dentistry, chiropractic, veterinary medicine, pharmacy, physician assistant, physical therapy, or optometry in the process of earning a Bachelor’s degree at IU Kokomo. See an academic advisor for details.
