University Majors

California State University, Stanislaus
Physical Science B.A.

This interdisciplinary degree prepares students for a greater diversity of professions requiring an understanding of the fundamentals of the physical sciences, including courses in astronomy, chemistry, environmental sciences, geology, marine sciences, meteorology, and physics. A student may pursue a physical sciences major by electing one of the following three concentrations: Applied physics, earth and space sciences, or environmental sciences. The major may also be pursued without a concentration by completing sufficient upper-division units in two areas of interest chosen from astronomy, chemistry, environmental sciences, geology, marine science, and physics.

Students interested in environmental design, technical administration in government and industry, laboratory technology, legal work pertaining to patents, or scientific librarianship and journalism, may elect this major as an opportunity to acquire an education tailored to their individual needs.

The Physical Sciences majors interested in medical school, dental school, and other health professions such as pharmacy, physical therapy, or optometry should work out a plan of study as soon as possible with their major adviser and the Pre- Health Professions Committee.
