VCU Interdisciplinary Sci program

5 areas of study

Charlene CrawleyWelcome 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.
