Frequently Asked Questions
Find the answers to students’ most frequently asked questions about UIU’s bachelor’s degree in All Science. If you don’t see the answer you need, contact us for help.
I’m interested in teaching mathematics. Is All Science right for me?
If teaching some math in the context of science, such as physics, yes! If teaching only math, you’ll want to pursue a separate endorsement in mathematics.
I’m interested in the subjects listed under All Science, but not in teaching. Is there another major that I should consider?
Yes. Take a look at the Environmental Science program, especially the Ecosystems emphasis.
I’m interested in mathematics and physics, and possibly engineering. Is All Science for pre-engineering students?
We do not have a specific pre-engineering program, but we do have some degree programs, minors, and coursework selections that can help you prepare for an engineering career, and for an engineering degree either as a transfer student or as preparation for a graduate program in engineering. The best way to find out about these alternatives is to declare a major in Mathematics, and work with your advisor to develop an individualized academic plan that best fits your goals.
I enjoyed PLTW (Project Lead the Way) and/or STEM studies in high school. Should I consider All Science?
A major in All Science is limited to students who intend to become schoolteachers. Ask to talk with a faculty member from the GeMS (Geosciences, Geography, and Mathematical Sciences) Department to discover your options to study in STEM fields. If your primary science interest is in biology or chemistry, you’ll want to consult with a faculty member in that department for a more in-depth exploration of those areas.
