A Bachelor of Arts degree is awarded in recognition of an undergraduate student’s completion of three to four years of coursework in a liberal arts or science concentration. A Bachelor of Arts in Natural Sciences is an appealing degree for students who have a broad interest in various scientific disciplines.

Just what is a BA in Natural Sciences? This degree offers an interdisciplinary approach to natural sciences, including chemistry, biology, geology, psychology, and physics. Students learn about fundamental concepts as well as current advances and research. Some programs allow students to choose areas of focus, and some institutions offer specialized courses, in topics such as neurology, botany, or anthropology. Many degree programs also require related coursework in mathematics, statistics, and history or philosophy of science.

This degree provides students with broad theoretical knowledge, along with practical knowledge of research and experimentation methods, which can be applied to many professions. Many students use this degree as a foundation for further studies in education, medicine, or other scientific disciplines.

The cost of earning a BA in Natural Sciences is different at every institution. Variables from geographic location to course length can dictate how much completing the degree will cost. Therefore, it is important for students to consider various programs and research the costs associated with each one.

Earning a BA in Natural Sciences can lead to numerous career opportunities. Graduates may become primary or secondary school teachers, or they may work as educators in other settings, such as state parks. Many graduates pursue interdisciplinary jobs, including scientific writing or environmental advocacy. Graduates may also seek higher education and work in related fields, such as sustainability, environmental law, or environmental consulting.

A number of institutions now offer the BA in Natural Sciences as a degree that can be earned completely online. For students interested in saving money, avoiding relocation, or completing a degree while balancing other obligations, online degrees are an option worth exploring. Getting more information or even applying to a program takes minimal time.

Biology is the study of life. As broad as that sounds, it’s a science that can lead to just as wide a range of careers: Knowledge of biology is a gateway to curing disease, and understanding illness, and learning more about the millions of species we share the planet with. At its core, biology involves the study of cells, the basic building blocks of life; genes, which govern heredity; and evolution, which examines how species change, and new species are created. As a biology student at Manhattanville, you’ll engage with each of these topics in-depth. You’ll also gain real-world experience by working on projects in research labs on campus, completing a senior research project, and, in many cases, pursuing off-campus internships – all of which are invaluable preparation for grad school or careers in the field. In the past, Manhattanville students have completed medical school, dental school, and other advanced programs, and found jobs in research labs, aquariums, and museums. -

The aim of the Mathematics Department is to provide students with a sound background in both pure and applied Mathematics while inculcating respect for objective reasoning, clear ideas, and precise expression (elements which truly characterize a liberal arts education). Our goal is to make students sophisticated in the way they think and in the way they approach problems. This heightened sophistication should extend beyond the boundaries of Mathematics into other areas. -
