The Basic Sciences major is a divisional major incorporating the five basic sciences of biology, chemistry, computer science, mathematics and physics. This divisional program is recommended for cadets who wish to major in the sciences but prefer a broad, flexible curriculum with a high degree of individual choice.
This program is also a sensible alternative for cadets already declared in either a basic sciences or engineering disciplinary major who, for a variety of reasons, find the divisional approach more suited to fulfilling graduation requirements.
Since this is not a disciplinary major, cadets wishing to go to graduate school with a Basic Sciences Major will most likely be required to take additional undergraduate courses in the selected graduate discipline prior to entering graduate school.
