Science Major

Are you fascinated by the world around you? Do you find yourself constantly asking “why”? Is your DVR full of Mythbusters episodes? If so, a science major might be the right choice for you. Science seeks to answer fundamental questions about the smallest building blocks of life to the greatest mysteries of the universe. A science major will give you the hands on laboratory experience and critical thinking skills needed to provide a solid foundation for a possible career in science or just satisfy your curiosity for the unknown. Isolate your own DNA! Grow bacteria that glows! Use forensics to trace an outbreak of a deadly disease! Do all of this and more when you choose to major in science at Inspire.
