Minor in General Science
The General Science minor is designed for those majoring in areas outside of the Department of Natural and Applied Sciences but who wish to have some general study of science. The General Science minor consists of 20 credits in science. Two of the five courses are required and the other three courses may be selected from restricted options.
The Evangel University Department of Natural and Applied Sciences is dedicated to the spiritual, academic and social growth of every student. The department’s purpose is to provide an excellent scientific education that is thoroughly integrated with the University’s emphasis on the development of strong Christian character. Within this framework, students must contend with new scientific, social, ethical and technological challenges. Students learn to communicate technical concepts clearly and effectively and exhibit analytical thinking and problem-solving skills. The General Science minor gives students who have an interest in science the opportunity to take selected science courses even though they choose to major in another subject area. It is an expansion of the liberal arts education concept. Course selection options give variety to meet the individual interests of the student. The study of general science may enhance the understanding and application of many other majors.
