Webs ite : www. iup. edu/natsciandmath

One of the characteristics of the twenty-first century is the marked change
in the relation of citizens to their environment. Space probes, orbiting
satellites, and productive research on the structure and synthesis of living
matter have brought to the forefront lor reexamination such time-honored
queries as. "What is the nature of the universe'.'" or "Can people control
their natural environment'.'" or "How did life begin?" Scientifically found
answers to these and other questions, coupled with proper application of
this knowledge for humankind's betterment, must be a significant part of
the goal of educated people everywhere.

The objectives of the college are to acquaint the student with the kinds of
problems which lend themselves to possible solutions through the use of
science; to introduce different scientific techniques through significant
illustrative experiences; to give a sense of perspective in the development
of science; and to develop an understanding of the basic community of all
scientific disciplines.

The departments of Biology, Chemistry. Computer Science, and Physics
oiler work leading to either a Bachelor of Science or a Bachelor of Arts
degree, depending upon the specific course program pursued. The Bachelor
of Science degree is awarded for successful work in the departments of
Geoscience, Mathematics, and Natural Science. The Bachelor of Arts degree

Degree Requirements

In addition to the university's Liberal Studies requirements, all students

the department through which (hey wish to specialize Statements of these

requirements and those for minoring in a specific field appear in the
department sections that follow A double major or minor may encompass a

with advisor approval As a general principle, there is considerable latitude
in course choice for Natural Sciences and Mathematics majors; tor specifi-
cally required courses, substitution in any program must have the written
approval of the student's department chairperson or the college dean.

The Foreign Language Requirement

Unless otherwise indicated, each department adheres to the following
foreign language requirement:

A candidate for a Bachelor of Arts 01 Bachelor of Science degree must

upon completion of two years of college instruction in that language. This
requirement may be met by one of the following:

a. successful completion of the intermediate level in a specific language

b. successful completion of an exemption or credit examination

Any foreign student, registered as such at IUP. whose acquired native
language is other than English and who demonstrates an acceptable
proficiency in English, is exempt from the foreign language requirement for
a Natural Sciences and Mathematics degree if the department he she is
majoring in does not require a specific language not thus covered

Several departments in the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics
have established extensive internship programs under which students eng
