The major rests on a solid foundation of chemistry and biology courses supported by 数学ematics and physics. These courses provide the tools to understand the chemistry of living things.
The 生物学 major prepares 学生 for graduate school, 医疗/联合保健专业学校, 或者从事教学工作, 生物技术, 工业实验室, 或者环境工作. 在生物学学位的一般框架内, 除了必需的生物学, 数学, 以及其他科学课程, a student may choose from one of three focus areas: organismal biology, 分子/细胞生物学, or pre-health professional; or create an individualized program to meet special interests.
This major allows 学生 to obtain Secondary Teacher Certification (grades 8-12) along with a 生物学 major.
The 化学 program has three main purposes: (1) to educate chemists for graduate work, 研究, 行业, and teaching; (2) to give a basic background in chemistry to 学生 of related sciences; and (3) as a part of general education, to broaden 学生’ knowledge of and appreciation for scientific advancement as it affects their lives, 社会, 和环境. The program emphasizes the application of chemical principles to the life sciences, although curriculum tracks for various other career areas may be appropriate.
A degree in 计算机科学 focuses on the provides a broad-based background sufficient for entry into a career in computing in many of its standard formats. 学生将具备软技能(如.g., 团队合作, 口头和书面沟通, 时间管理, 解决问题, 灵活性)和个人属性(如.g., 风险承受能力, 共同掌权, 耐心, 职业道德, 机会识别, 社会责任感, appreciation of diversity) that play a critical role in this career path.
总要求:120学时 (Bachelor of 科学)
The Associate of 科学 degree in Engineering Studies provides a rigorous course of study in the prerequisites of a four-year engineering program. All courses in the program are accepted for credit by the Engineering Schools of the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville toward any of their specific engineering field programs. Generally, 学生 from Brescia with this two-year degree should be able to complete a B.S. degree in engineering after two additional years at the University of Kentucky; however, some areas of engineering may require some summer course work if the Bachelor’s degree is to be completed in four years.
The Health 科学s Associate Degree encompasses the courses identified as prerequisites for admission into the University of Louisville’s School of Nursing; the degree enables 学生 to be competitive in seeking admission into the U of L program or other nursing programs.
The 数学ematics curriculum at Brescia University combines concern for maximizing the learning of each individual and an interdisciplinary approach into a program that balances traditional 数学ematical theory, 创造性解决问题的过程, and development of applied models to solve real problems. It prepares 学生 for meaningful careers in both 行业 and teaching or for graduate study.
This major allows 学生 to obtain Secondary Teacher Certification (grades 8-12) along with a 数学 major.
Students pursuing an Education major with Middle School Certification may choose 数学ematics as one of the two required Specialty Areas (English, 数学, 社会研究, 科学, 或特殊教育).
Students in this major register with the biology area and pursue three years of coursework in biology and chemistry. The final year is a 12-month internship in the laboratory of an approved hospital, earning a maximum of 30 credit hours during the internship. Brescia is affiliated with the Owensboro Health Regional Hospital and with the University of Louisville and its partnered affiliations as possible sites for the 医疗 技术 internship requirement.
