Many science curricula require one or two courses in several science disciplines so the student can be declared a science major. The overall objective of the General Science program of study is to provide students with the basic knowledge and laboratory skills they will need in upper-level specialty courses.

The undecided student has the opportunity to obtain a degree and still fulfill some course requirements outside a particular specialty discipline. Upon completion of the program, students will be eligible to transfer to a University as a Junior.
