Physical science is a multidisciplinary major that deals primarily with nonliving matter. It concerns itself with the theoretical and observable natural phenomena of our world and universe.

Interdisciplinary majors offered by the College of Arts & Sciences provide options for those who have not chosen a specialized major. They offer opportunities to create individual fields of emphasis for people who want to pursue multidisciplinary solutions to today’s complex problems.

Despite the popularity of specialized majors, employers have a growing recognition that individuals who are broadly trained, have knowledge of a culture other than their own, think well and analyze logically, and express themselves clearly and persuasively both in writing and speaking are highly desirable employees.

These students also are readily accepted in graduate and professional programs. It is important, however, for students to focus their programs somewhat. Consequently, the College of Arts & Sciences offers the following four interdisciplinary majors: humanities, life science, physical science and social science.
