California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo
Liberal Studies B.S. Concentration in Sciences

The mission of Liberal Studies is to ensure that students are prepared to teach competently and professionally each of the seven content areas in the state-mandated curriculum (K-8). The Physical Scienes concentration has disciplines in both Physical and Earth science. The discipline of Physical Science is based on laws governing matter, motion and energy. The two major divisions are chemistry, in which the structure, composition and transformation of substances is studied and physics in which motion and energy of matter are considered. The following courses develop an understanding of the laws of matter, motion and energy and also include the application of those laws in geology and astronomy. Knowledge is generated by a study of information already generated and by personal observations and experiments in a laboratory setting. The Earth Science is a discipline that relates all sciences related to the planet earth and the sky. They are mainly divided in geology and astronomy and future students need to have a good understanding of the foundations of theses two fields. Additional studies will allow students to get in-depth understanding of these disciplines and connections to other sciences.
