College of Sciences
Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics
Focus: training students in the traditional core mathematics curriculum as well as in its applications, providing sufficient flexibility to accommodate the wide variety of interests of undergraduate majors while also preparing students for the extensive employment opportunities for applied mathematicians.
Bachelor of Science in Applied Physics
Focus: preparing students for entry into industry or government through an emphasis on the applications of physics, while also offering preparation for further professional training in fields such as medicine, law, dentistry, and business.
Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry
Focus: ensuring a strong foundation in the chemical and biological sciences while also providing the flexibility for students to tailor the curriculum to satisfy specific interests or goals, including careers in research, teaching, or in a life/health science profession (medicine, pharmacy, or dentistry).
Bachelor of Science in Biology
Focus: preparing students for employment in academia, government, or industry; for graduate studies in the biological sciences or science teaching; or for admission to medical, dental, or veterinary schools, all in the context of a systems approach to solving biological problems.
Bachelor of Science in Chemistry
Focus: preparing students for careers in industry or government in such diverse fields as forensics, nanoscience, biotechnology, and pharmaceuticals; or for continuing their education in the chemical or biological sciences, or in medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, and law.
Bachelor of Science in Discrete Mathematics
Focus: providing students with the methods of discrete mathematics, which are essential when computer algorithms are analyzed, transportation networks or communications systems are designed, or when optimal schedules are sought.
Bachelor of Science in Earth and Atmospheric Sciences
Focus: going beyond traditional degrees in meteorology and environmental sciences to provide hands-on experiences in the collection and interpretation of environmental data and in predictive modeling.
Bachelor of Science in Physics
Focus: providing a strong background in mathematics and the physical principles of mechanics; electricity and magnetism; thermodynamics; and quantum theory that govern physical phenomena at the microscopic level of molecules, atoms, and nuclei.
Bachelor of Science in Psychology
Focus: emphasizing quantitative and experimental approaches to the study of behavior and providing students with excellent preparation for graduate school in psychology, medicine, law, and other programs.
