Science Versus Non-Science Degree Programs

In general, students pursuing an Associate of Arts degree will follow the non-science guidelines for the Core Curriculum.

The Core Curriculum track for students pursuing the Bachelor of Science and Associate of Science degrees will depend on the major and track for baccalaureate students and on the transfer pathway for the Associate of Science degree.

Non-Science Majors:


Plus, one course from the following:


Note(s):


Non-science majors may alternately choose 8 hours from the list of courses for science majors in Area D.

Either of the PHSC classes can serve as a pre-requisite for SCIE 1006  or SCIE 1007 .

Students changing from a science to a non-science major or transferring from another USG institution may use courses taken in Area D science option, to satisfy the Area D non-science option requirement.

Credit toward graduation not allowed for the following combinations of science courses:

  • Principles of Biology and non-Science Biology courses (see Biology Course Descriptions  for specifics),
  • Principles of Chemistry and non-Science Chemistry courses (see Chemistry Course Descriptions  for specifics), and
  • Principles of Physics and non-Science Physics courses (see Physics Course Descriptions  for specifics).

Science Majors:


Plus 3-4 Hours from the Following:
