This program is designed to provide students with a solid background in science, economics, and fundamental managerial skills. The major requires a minimum of 22 courses in addition to the college’s general-education requirements (some of the Core Program will overlap). Majors complete a core program of a minimum of seventeen courses in addition to a five-course sequence. Some major requirements may be waived due to placement. Students may also construct their own sequence in consultation with the Science Management advisor.
Learning Outcomes for the Program in Science Management
The Science Management major aims to prepare students to be leaders at the interface of science and business and in related fields.
In addition to the general departmental goals, students completing a major in Science Management should demonstrate the ability to:
- Master the principles in their specific sequence/track (molecular biology, environmental biology, chemistry, physics, or other fields) and acquire the ability to apply them to solving problems including research questions.
- Master the fundamental principles of economics and accounting.
- Gain experience in the world outside the classroom.
