The bachelor's degree program in astrophysics is designed to prepare students for graduate-level work in the field. The curriculum is rigorous enough for graduates to pursue a diverse number of careers after graduation, or to pursue advanced degrees. Graduates will have a marketable set of skills, knowledge of physics, laboratory experience, adaptability and critical thinking to pursue a professional career in a variety of scientific fields.
The bachelor's degree in Earth System Science provides the knowledge and the skills to make observations and informed interpretations about the nature of the Earth and its relation to human activities. The geologic history and processes that drive the earth system (Plate Tectonics and Climate) provide insights that permit predictions relevant to natural resource management, geologic hazards and basic land use. The area of concentration is intended for students who desire rigorous, broad-based preparation in most of the subdisciplines within geology. This program is strongly recommended for students who wish to attend graduate school in a geosciences area.
The integrated science minor is a good supplement to a variety of science-related degree programs, including earth science, space science, biology and chemistry.
Space science is an extremely interdisciplinary and technology-intensive discipline which encompasses physics, astrophysics, satellite telecommunications, electrical engineering, mathematics and computer sciences.
