Bachelor of Science in Science (SCICC):
The SCICC degree program provides a multi-disciplinary science education that can lead to specialization in either in the Life Sciences or General Science and also to the development of expertise in a wide variety of specialized foci. After completing foundation courses in calculus, chemistry, physics, and the life sciences, students will select additional courses that will give them a focus in areas such as General Life Sciences, Environmental Life Sciences, Cell and Molecular Biology, Biotechnology, Bioinformatics, Chemistry, Applied Math, Applied Physics, or General Science. Students can also choose from a variety of non-science supporting courses that will give them additional background in such areas as IST, Business, Communications, or Liberal Arts. The SCICC program prepares students for a variety of careers in the sciences, as well as for entry into graduate school and professional school. It also provides the necessary broad scientific education which, when combined with specific electives, produces graduates who are prime candidates for jobs in non-traditional science-related areas, such as business, lab management, patent and intellectual property law, IST, and liberal arts-related work (communications, publishing, science writing, illustrations, etc.).
