About the B.A. in Interdisciplinary Science

  • Preparation for Optometry and Engineering “combined” programs
  • Preparation for graduate school

  • Students interested in preparing for professional careers in dentistry, medicine, osteopathy, veterinary medicine, or related medically allied fields.
  • Transfer students who want to complete a science major within two years geared toward a variety of careers.
