The Division of Science is composed of the following areas: Biology, Chemistry,  Engineering, and Physics. The curriculum in the division acquaints non-science majors with the cultural and educational values of science, provides pre-professional students with the proper background of knowledge and skills, and provides concentrated instruction for students who have chosen one of the areas as a major. 

Important:
 The colleges and universities offering a bachelor degree in these related fields of study
may vary in some requirements. See the adviser for these programs and refer to specific
college and university catalogs for course acceptance verification.
