General Science Minor

Why Minor in General Science?

The minor program in General Science could also serve as a model for an area of concentration in “general science” for students majoring in Liberal Studies.

Requirements for the Minor in General Science

Minor Requirements:

Although many substitutions are possible, the courses listed below would satisfy the minor requirements, and would be appropriate for students with a broad interest in the sciences:

  • ASTR 0101 - Astronomy
