General Science Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Interdisciplinary Programs

The General Science minor offers students the opportunity to study the natural sciences as a group, based on the view that the natural sciences together are the area of secondary interest for the student.

This minor is especially appropriate for, but not limited to, early childhood education majors with aptitude and interest in the natural sciences and others interested in cross-disciplinary content. Although some students may wish to complete a minor in a separate science discipline, others may want a wider curricular base and mix in the content they wish to study. The General Science minor provides this while retaining unity and focus. Further, in addition to providing breadth of study of the natural sciences as a group, it allows for a measure of investigation in depth of a selected discipline.

For further information, contact the General Science Minor Advisor, Dr. Peter Licona.

The minor in General Science requires seven courses (at least 27 credits). One required course must be selected from each of the following five disciplines:



Two or more elective courses (totaling at least seven credits)

Chosen from any biology, chemistry, earth science, physics, or engineering courses 200-level or above (or at 100-level if the elected course has a prerequisite in the same discipline that also must be completed). See Course Descriptions .
