Humanities and Science Curriculum

University of the Sciences' BS in Humanities and Science program gives you a thorough grounding in the natural sciences in combination with in-depth study in the various humanities disciplines. You can create a major that centers on a traditional discipline, such as English or history, or develop a cross-disciplinary major on a theme of your own devising. Whatever your choice, you will complete the necessary prerequisites for application to medical school and various other graduate programs, with at least 32 credit hours of natural science and at least 42 credits of work in humanities.
