Students wishing to receive the BSC degree must attain an overall GPA of 2.00 in their science and mathematics courses (the technical cum) taken in fulfillment of their major as well as attaining an overall GPA of 2.00 in all courses. The record of any student falling below 2.00 (either overall or technical cum) in any semester will be reviewed by the Academic Standing Committee for appropriate action.
Each BSC student completes a core of science and mathematics courses:
In addition each student must select six (6) upper division science courses. These should be selected in conjunction with your advisor and form the basis of your upper division science education. Some sample programs are given at this web-site.
Students interested in continuing on to medical school or similar health related fields should see the Prehealth Advising Office website for information on the science courses they need to take.
Plan their academic program in accord with the requirements set forth in the Villanova University Bulletin Undergraduate Full-Time Studies.
