The Collegiate Sequence majors are interdisciplinary programs that integrate science with another area of study. The Collegiate Sequence majors are housed in the Department of Preprofessional Studies.
The Science-Business collegiate sequence is an individualized course of study which incorporates courses from the basic areas of business along with the four basic areas of science. This is a complete and sufficient program to enable a graduate to enter the scientific business market immediately after graduation. This approach also enables students to attain a diversified background to enter an MBA program, leading to a position primarily in the scientific or health professions business area.
Students in the Science-Business major will take courses in the College of Science, the College of Arts and Letters, and the Mendoza College of Business. Information on the areas of public health and hospital administration, as well as the needs of the pharmaceutical, biological, and chemical industries, are available in the Department of Health Professions in 219 Jordan Hall of Science.
The Science-Computing collegiate sequence is an individualized course of study which incorporates courses from the four basic areas of science along with a sequence of computing courses. The program will give the student working knowledge of various computer languages and experience using current computer technology. By choosing science electives appropriately, the student has the option of focusing in an area of science of particular interest. Graduates of this program have the knowledge and skills to enter the scientific computing job market immediately upon graduation.
The Science-Education collegiate sequence is an individualized course of study which incorporates many courses from the four basic areas of science along with education courses that most states require to give the student the background necessary to receive a certificate to teach in a secondary education system. Science-Education students take courses in the College of Science and other colleges of the University, as well as the Education Department at Saint Mary's College. Information concerning the requirements for the secondary education in the various states, as well as the general course requirements for a certificate necessary to teach science in a secondary education program, is available in the assistant and associate dean's office, 174 Hurley Hall.
