Undergraduate Programs

The Charles E. Schmidt College of Science at Florida Atlantic University offers undergraduate students the opportunity to work with accomplished faculty and engage in hands-on research. The College awards the Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Bachelor of Science (BS) degrees in biology, chemistry, geosciences, math, physics, and psychology. BA programs have greater elective breadth with less specialization than BS programs. BS programs meet the requirements of professional science organizations and provide more intensive training required for graduate work. Some degrees offer an emphasis for more in-depth study of special topics. Highly motivated and prepared students in biology and mathematics can earn BS and Master of Science (MS) degrees in 5 years of study with an accelerated program.
