Natural Sciences

A BSc (Bachelor of Science) is an undergraduate degree that prepares students for a career in their field of study. While the degree is often related to courses in the realm of science, students in non-science fields can also earn a BSc.

Natural sciences studies teach how the scientific method can be applied to the study of nature and the universe. There may be many opportunities for specialization in a specific branch such as Earth science, physics or chemistry.

The Middle East is the birthplace of several current major religions and influential empires from millennia past. Scholars and graduates get the benefit of immersing themselves in these cultures and gaining a deeper understanding of one of the world’s most vibrant regions.
