Natural Sciences Major
Study the expansive field of science and science-supporting mathematics with the Bachelor of Arts in Natural Sciences and Bachelor of Science in Natural Sciences in Temple’s College of Science and Technology. This 123-credit-hour degree will prepare you for professional programs that require a broad understanding of science and its applications.
The major provides a great basis for dental, forensics, law, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, science education and science writing. However, the Natural Sciences degree doesn’t prepare you for a master's degree program in a traditional science discipline or for technical employment in a traditional science discipline.
You’ll learn how to
- approach and solve mathematical problems,
- communicate scientific research through electronic media, speaking and writing, and
- process and evaluate both real-life and theoretical quantitative data.
While studying the gamut of sciences, you’ll also acquire focused knowledge over four years by selecting a concentration in Biology, Chemistry, Geology or Physics.
