Biological and Physical Sciences Degree
Know you love science and want to cover all your future bases? Interested in gaining a broad understanding of the natural sciences while also dabbling in humanities, social, and behavioral sciences? The biological and physical sciences degree from Indiana University Kokomo is designed to allow you to tailor your studies to your specific career goals. Depending on your personal goals and interests, you can choose either the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in Biological and Physical Sciences.
The biological and physical sciences degree is customizable. As an example, you might choose a curriculum to provide the essential knowledge base for a career in sustainability and earth sciences. In this case, you would take courses in geology, physical geography, and environmental conservation. On the other hand, if you want to pursue a career in agricultural or industrial research, you’ll elect a different combination of courses. Knowing what you want for your future and working closely with your advisor are key to the biological and physical sciences degree!
You will graduate with a deep understanding of the sciences, plus exposure to the arts and humanities, preparing you to begin a career, or go on to graduate or professional school.
With small class sizes, you’ll get to know your peers and professors on a first-name basis. You’ll have the opportunity to work closely in the lab with your professors one-on-one…and maybe even publish research with them! (How great would that look on your future resume?) You can also join student groups, gain internship experience, and maybe even take trips to see what you learn in the classroom and lab in action.
Whether you plan on attending graduate school or a professional school in a health-related field, the BA and BS in Biological and Physical Sciences are a great place to start.
