Welcome to VCU’s Interdisciplinary Science Program Web site. If
you are interested in science and haven’t yet defined your profession
or are embarking upon a career uniquely different from the traditional
major offerings, then the science degree may be for you.
The B.S. in Science is an interdisciplinary program that provides
students with a broad-based background in the physical and biological
sciences. This program contains concentration areas in biology, chemistry,
mathematics, general science and physics. The B.S. in Science provides
a foundation suitable for careers ranging from zoology and meteorology
to nursing and technical sales. In addition, this program is designed to allow flexibility within the curriculum for those students interested in pursuing a minor in a second discipline.
With the increasing interest and competitiveness in pre-health care
programs such as pharmacy and dentistry, the biology, chemistry and
general science tracks in the science program satisfy pre-health requirements
and provide the competitive edge inherent in applicants completing a
four-year technical degree.
Deciding on your degree of study is a huge decision that should be
well-researched and never rushed. Take a look through the information
provided on this site and please let us know if we can answer any questions
or offer assistance to you in any way.
