Associates of Arts -Interdisciplinary Studies in Science, A.A.
Students completing the associate of arts degree may continue their program and obtain a baccalaureate degree or may begin their work careers.
Natural Resources, A.A.
The Associate of Arts in Natural Resources degree prepares the student to work as a technician monitoring physical and biological aspects of our environment.
Bachelor of Arts - Environmental Studies, B.A.
Interdisciplinary Studies in Science, B.A.
Science (5-12 Credential), B.A.
Bachelor of Science - Biological Science, B.S.
The environmental Studies degree examines the science underlying environmental issues as well as the social, political, and economic factors that contribute to policy and management decisions. This degree places students at the center of the investigation of local environmental issues in context with national and global questions. Students will gain the necessary professional and technical skills for entry into successful environmental careers or for graduate studies in environmental fields.
Biomedical Science, Degree, B.S.
The Biomedical Science degree is intended for students planning to enter professional health schools such as medical and dental schools. These guidelines may change depending on the requirements of the professional health school to which the student applies. It is highly recommended that students compare these degree requirements with the admissions requirements of the schools to which they plan to apply, as some variation may occur. Department advisors will work closely with students in this major to help them meet those requirements.
Medical Laboratory Science, B.S.
Combined Science, B.S.
This baccalaureate degree provides students with an in-depth study in two science areas. The B.S. in Combined Science degree requires the completion of three segments of course work: 1) the General University Course Requirements (GUCRs), 2) the science/mathematics core requirements, and 3) the combination of two specializations. This major differs from the B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies in Science in terms of the specificity of courses in each specialization. Students desiring more flexibility in course selection should consider the B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies. It also prepares students for a variety of positions in industry and government and provides the foundation for graduate study in science or mathematics.
Environmental Science (Specialization in Chemistry), B.S.
The environmental science degree emphasizes chemistry, biology, and geology necessary to prepare students for complex environmental issues in mediation, control, and planning. This degree prepares students for a variety of positions in industry and government, as well as graduate studies in environmental science.
Environmental Science (Specialization in Natural Resources), B.S.
The environmental science degree emphasizes chemistry, biology and geology necessary to prepare students for complex environmental issues in mediation, control and planning. This degree prepares students for a variety of positions in industry and government, as well as graduate studies in environmental science.
Certificate - Medical Laboratory Science Certificate
The Medical Laboratory Science Certificate is intended to train students interested in pursuing careers in the medical laboratory sciences. It is offered to students who have completed a Bachelor of Science degree and who satisfy all the prerequisites for this program. To qualify for acceptance into this program, students must have taken a minimum of 16 semester hours of chemistry. This includes a year of general chemistry and organic chemistry and/or biochemistry. Students must have completed a minimum of 16 semester hours of biological science. The biology courses must be acceptable toward a major in biological science and must include general biology and one semester of bacteriology (microbiology). Immunology is required either as a separate course or as part of another course. A minimum of one course in university-level mathematics is required.
Natural Resources Certificate
A student completing this certificate program is qualified to work in governmental and industrial positions that require certification in natural resources. The curriculum includes 19 semester hours in professional course work. All courses in the Natural Resources Certificate may be applied toward the A.A. and B.S. degrees in Natural Resources.
