The Science of Success

Broad exposure to a variety of scientific disciplines is essential for understanding the complexities of current issues including stem cell research, biological warfare and climate change. Informed decision-making on such issues requires knowledge of chemistry, mathematics, physics, geology and biology.

The Integrated Science minor provides a solid foundation for advanced study in the sciences. It includes courses in multiple disciplines that can be tailored to your scientific passions. This minor also serves as a powerful complement to the pursuit of careers in business, journalism, law, the social sciences or politics.

Major/minor requirements and course descriptions are available in the online version of the Guilford College Catalog. Use the keyboard shortcuts Control F for PC or Command F for Mac to search the document for your program.
