General Science


The Minor in General Science is restricted to students in the BSc. Liberal program and may be used for the breadth component in this option.

The BSc. Liberal program is a flexible program where you combine a core science component (CSC) in one discipline with a breadth component. A CSC is less specialized than a Major. You should consider the Liberal program and the General Science Minor if you do not want to overly specialize – and as a bonus, you’ll have plenty of room left over for elective courses.


The General Science Minor and the BSc. Liberal program give you the opportunity to tailor your degree to your specific interests, allowing you to pursue a wide a range of career options. No matter what topics you focus on, you will gain valuable skills in areas like research and critical thinking.

You could become a professional:

  • High school Science teacher
  • Science technician
  • Pharmaceutical sales and marketing representative
  • Science and technology writer
