Curriculum and Program Information

The Department of Natural Sciences offers major programs in Biology, Chemistry, and General Science; minor programs in Biology and Chemistry; and Cooperative Program in Histotechnology with Harford Community College.

All science majors must successfully pass a department comprehensive exit examination during the spring of the senior year and complete a senior thesis in order to graduate.

General Education Requirements in the Natural Sciences

All science majors must take BIOL 106 Cell Biology and CHEM 101 General Chemistry I as the general education requirements in the Natural Sciences. The general education requirement in science for other majors can be met by taking one course each from two disciplines, one of which must be a laboratory course and include the following courses: BIOL 101 or BIOL 107, and CHEM 101 or PHSC 101 or PHSC 102 or PHSC 103 or as instructed by the major advisor and approved by the Department.
