Flexibility and breadth are the primary advantages offered by the major in General Science. With suitable attention to admission requirements, this major can provide needed preparation for admission into a variety of graduate and advanced professional programs from physical therapy to veterinary medicine and even traditional and non-traditional medical school programs. This major is also a good choice for students who may wish to take minors within or even outside the sciences in preparation for graduate work in fields such as business and law, where a background in the natural sciences can be valuable.
