Program Description

The requirements set forth in each of the majors are designed to prepare graduates for a wide variety of potential career paths. Central to the design of each of our program’s degree tracks is an emphasis on the versatility imparted by a liberal arts education. We strive to prepare students for employment and continued life-long learning. Therefore, the requirements for the science majors integrate direct, hands-on learning with critical and creative thinking oriented education.
