Bachelor of Arts
The B.A. program allows students sufficient flexibility to explore their breadth of interests and still acquire an in-depth knowledge of the sciences.
In addition to the College’s general degree requirements, the courses required for the B.A. degree are two semesters of General Biology and General Chemistry, one semester of Organic Chemistry, Physics, Calculus, and Introduction to Cell and Molecular Genetics, plus seven (7) additional courses - three (3) biology courses with laboratories (4 credits each) and four (4) approved science courses above the introductory level elected from biology, chemistry, computer science, mathematics, and physics [Exceptions allowed: CHM 202, EPS 102, MTH 110, 131, 132, 217, and 218.]
It is strongly recommended that students in the B.A. program participate in some form of experiential education, e.g., internships, research (on- or off-campus) or attend a field school for at least one summer.
