Choosing a degree in General Science opens many doors and prepares scientifically curious students for a number of career paths. Ideally suited to match MAC’s Education curriculum, General Science studies enables students to develop a well-honed, critical world-view. In conjunction with a liberal arts core curriculum, General Science grads gain a well-rounded appreciation for the “grand synthesis” of intellectual pursuit – the integration and cohesiveness of broad areas of thought. General Science studies will also bring students to an appreciation of the Scientific Method of inquiry and to distinguish between scientific law, theory and hypothesis.

General Science studies foster the overall rounding of a person, and encourage a high level of sophistication when evaluating scientific information. Graduates of this exciting program will be well-positioned to make informed decisions in areas of their personal and professional lives requiring deeper appreciation of the sciences. Their work in this exciting degree area will encourage in-depth evaluation of scientific elements of issues and controversies of a rapidly developing world. The general sciences field is projected to grow by 7% in the next ten years and the median annual wage for professionals with general science degrees was $61,450 in 2014.

The program offers preparation for future graduate work and/or entry level into the public or private sectors requiring a scientific focus. Additionally, this program in conjunction with the Mount Aloysius College’s Education major will prepare students with a solid grounding in the sciences to become more knowledgeable and effective teachers.
