Welcome to the College of Science!
The College of Science (COS) is committed to providing a supportive, inclusive and collaborative learning environment to all of our students. We understand the transition to a four-year institution can be challenging and we are here to assist you through every step of your academic journey.
On this Page: Undergraduate Program Information
With over 3,000 undergraduates, our college offers a variety of academic programs within the disciplines of Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics. Upon graduation, our students pursue careers in health professions, secondary teaching, continue their education with graduate research and so much more.
Many of these majors offer both a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or a Bachelor of Science (BS). If you're not sure which one is right for you, check out our information on the differences between a BA and a BS below.
Biological Sciences Department
Biochemistry with Forensic Science - BS
Biochemistry with Secondary Teaching - BA || BS
Biology with Forensic Science - BS
Biology with Secondary Teaching - BA || BS
Ecology for Environmental Science - BS
Medical Laboratory Sciences - BS
Chemistry with Forensic Science - BS
Chemistry with Secondary Teaching - BA || BS
Mathematics with Secondary Teaching - BA || BS
Physics with Astrophysics - BS
Physics with Computation - BS
Physics with Engineering Physics - BS
Physics with Secondary Teaching - BA || BS
For most of our degree programs, a BA will usually require less math/science courses and allow more electives than a BS.
What are your goals?
A BA is great for students who want to teach at the high school level or go into a particular industry--like business or medicine.
A BS is great for students who may want to continue their studies into graduate school, go into academia, or do research professionally.
If you're not sure which degree program is right for you, we are happy to guide you to the choice that's right for you and your goals.
The College of Science (COS) walking tours are held in person every Wednesday and Friday on the Denton campus. The tour will highlight our science facilities and student support services with an opportunity for guests to speak with a COS student ambassador and academic advisor to learn more about our programs.
COS tours and university campus tours are both available by scheduling through the UNT Tours website. Make sure you select your intended major of study so the specific COS Tour dates will appear in blue.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to the College of Science. If you have questions about a COS degree program or applying to UNT, please schedule a Future Student meeting with Tanya Sanchez.
