Applied Sciences Bachelor of Science
Leading to the Bachelor of Science Degree in Applied Sciences
The Bachelor of Science in Applied Sciences (BSAS) program is an interdisciplinary and experiential degree that gives students solid grounding in biology, chemistry, and physics – ideal for those with an interest in the sciences and a curiosity to explore and create. Applied Sciences Majors gain competence in all three disciplines through dedicated coursework and active research projects. Students acquire extensive laboratory experience and the computational aptitude to analyze and report their findings. The interdisciplinary nature of the BSAS program is in line with the expectations of today’s varied job market, preparing students for careers in research and development, technical writing, or scientific computing. Interested students will be well qualified to continue their studies in graduate programs or medical school.
Program Educational Objectives
- Develop advanced technical skills in multiple scientific disciplines
- Integrate mathematics and computer science with both the physical and life sciences
- Obtain theoretical and experimental skill sets in both the classroom and the laboratory
- Effectively communicate scientific and technical findings to a wide audience in written and oral form
- Prepare for diverse career paths, including in-demand industries like biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, or continued graduate education
Total credits for degree: 128
This is a four year program, which starts in the fall semester of the student's first year and is planned to end in the summer semester of the student's fourth year.
