Department of Natural Sciences

Biological and Physical Sciences Degree


This Bachelor of Science program provides both a broad-based curriculum in the Liberal Arts and a specific set of courses in the Natural Sciences designed to meet the personal and career goals and interests of the student. While the department offers more narrowly focused degree programs in biology, chemistry, and microbiology, this program allows the student more flexibility in tailoring a degree program to his/her unique needs. This degree is especially appropriate for students interested in environmental science; environmental, medical or patent law; and geosciences. Students are encouraged to participate in an appropriate field experience or research activity as part of their curriculum. Students interested in secondary science education may consider the B.S. in Biological and Physical Sciences with Emphasis in Teacher Certification.

Students who have earned an Associate of Science from Lone Star College can earn a B.S. in Biological and Physical Sciences through the 2+2 UHD-LSC articulation agreement. Students should contact Dr. Ken Johnson for more information. The degree plans shown at this site do not apply to this program.

The approved degree plan for this program will be determined through consultation among the student, his/her advisor in the Department of Natural Sciences, and the chairperson of the Department of Natural Sciences. A minimum of 120 hours of university-level course work is required to complete all graduation requirements.
