The General Science degree allows students to become familiar with both the theory and the practice of science. General Science can be appropriate for students interested in a variety of health-related careers including medicine, dentistry, physical therapy, and veterinary science.
General Science may be particularly useful to students whose scientific interests do not fit well within a single discipline. The pharmaceutical, neurosciences, biophysical, and agricultural sciences are examples of such cross-disciplinary areas.
General Science is especially appropriate for students who intend to teach science at the secondary school level. When combined with other majors or minors, a degree in General Science can be excellent preparation for careers in law, business, and public relations.
