Majors and Minors
Students may major in biochemistry, biology, chemistry, environmental science, mathematics, or natural sciences.
Minors are offered in biology, chemistry, and mathematics.
Judson’s Department of Teacher Education offers several options for students interested in science or mathematics education. Secondary education majors may choose programs in biology, chemistry, environmental science, or mathematics.
The Department offers four-year programs for students who plan to apply to professional schools of medicine, dentistry, chiropractic, veterinary medicine, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and physician's assistant.
Students in these programs select one of the majors listed under Majors and Minors, and then customize it to meet the admissions requirements of professional schools in their field(s) of interest.
The Department also offers two-year programs for students interested in careers in nursing or pharmacy. After completing two years of basic science and liberal arts requirements at Judson, and securing acceptance to the appropriate professional school, pre-nursing students complete an additional two years for the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree, while pre-pharmacy students complete an additional four years for the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree.
