Natural Science Degree Sheet

Degree Sheet Components:

Each degree sheet includes the following:

  • Common Core: The Common Core consists of general education courses which are designed to develop the essential skills needed for all learning, provide a common core of knowledge for the intellectual life of the University, and set a context of meaning and value for the student’s specialized study in the area of concentration or major field.
  • Flex Core: The Flex Core consists of a minimum of 12 hours chosen to strengthen the Common Core but also to provide flexibility to serve specific needs of the various degrees.
  • Area of Specialization: Each student must complete an area of concentration of a minimum of 40 hours or a major of at least 30 hours and a minimum of 18 hours in a minor.

Minimum requirements for the baccalaureate degree are 128 semester hours of course work. All students complete a program of Common Core and Flex Core courses, and courses in an area of concentration, or major and minor courses, to bring the degree program to the minimum of 128 hours; some professional programs require more than this total number of hours. A minimum of 39 hours must be junior or senior level (courses numbered 3000-4999).

College of Science and Mathematics

The James E. Hurley College of Science and Mathematics is composed of four departments: biology, chemistry, mathematics, and natural science and physics. Degree programs offered within these departments prepare students for direct entry into a wide variety of careers. Many students also study in these disciplines as undergraduate liberal arts preparation for further graduate study in differing professions.
