Comprehensive Science Degree

The Comprehensive Science major at Walsh University is for students who have an aptitude for science but do not wish to attend professional, graduate or Medical Technologist - American Society of Clinical Pathologists (MT-ASCP) training programs.

Instead, they prefer to complete a Bachelor's of Science (B.S.) degree and move into the private employment sector.

“Walsh University gave me the opportunity to shape my education in any direction that I wanted through the interdisciplinary architecture of the courses I was enrolled. This also enabled me to graduate on time with a major in biology and three minors in chemistry, sociology and history. As a graduate student, I will have the opportunity to work with our partners at NASA to help uncover the question the world has been wondering for years, ‘what happens to the body when it’s in space?’ Once I complete my doctorate, my ideal job opportunity would be to continue my role with the Air Force/NASA.”
