Course Catalog

The Bachelor of Arts in General Science is designed for students who seek a broad background in all four areas of science (biology, chemistry, earth and space science, and physics). Students can choose between two concentrations.

  • The General concentration provides a broad background in science along with a few courses that examine areas of interest to the student. Typically, this concentration is chosen in coordination with a major in a related field.
  • The Secondary Education concentration mirrors the general concentration but also includes seven additional courses in education. A graduate of this program will be eligible for Pennsylvania teacher certification in general science for grades 7-12 (dependent on grade point average and qualifying score on teacher examination). Typically, teachers with this certification teach grades 7-9 (either general science, life science, physical science or earth science).
