The natural sciences major is an interdepartmental science program that leads to the Bachelor of Arts degree. It is intended to serve students whose interests and objectives call for a major in the humanities or social sciences that is accompanied by broad background in the natural sciences; e.g. history and philosophy of science and technology. Natural sciences may be taken only as a second major. The student also must declare and complete a major in one of the humanities or social sciences, except for the programs indicated below.
B.A., second major only. The first major for the B.A. must be in one of the departments within the arts and humanities or the social sciences, excluding the programs in American Studies, Asian Studies (Track 2), Environmental Studies, Gerontological Studies, Pre-Architecture, and Women's Studies. For a student who completes a B.S. degree in management or accounting, Natural Sciences may serve as the sole major for the B.A. degree.
