Explore our Programs

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.

Bachelor of Arts (BA) vs. Bachelor of Science (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.

Take a tour of College of Science labs

The College of Science (COS) walking tours are held in person every other Friday on the Denton campus. The tour will visit science classrooms and labs with opportunities for guests to speak with COS students, faculty, and staff 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.

(At this time, Spring 2023 College of Science tours are full. Please check back in July for Fall 2023 dates)
