General Science degrees abroad

General science degrees allow students to explore a vast array of scientific disciplines and principles. They’re a great option if your career aspirations require knowledge of more than one scientific field.

As a general science major, you’ll have the flexibility to tailor your program to suit your strengths and interests. As well as taking classes in biology, chemistry, and physics, you’ll have the chance to select more niche topics that align with your goals. Upon graduation, you’ll be prepared for a range of exciting science-related careers.

Not only does studying abroad mean you’ll have a wider range of programs to choose from, but it’s also a fantastic opportunity to broaden your cultural horizons and make lifelong memories.

General Science program structure

A bachelor’s degree in general science is studied over three or four years, depending on your country and university. General science is an impressive standalone degree, but it’s also a great springboard for further study on professional graduate programs.

Bachelor’s degrees in the US require four years of full-time study and are offered as either a BS or a BA. As a general rule of thumb, BS students take more major-focused classes in science, whereas BA students complete more liberal arts classes alongside their major.

Because general science is such a far-reaching topic, master’s and doctorate degrees aren’t available. You’ll need to narrow your focus and pursue a postgraduate qualification in a more specialized scientific discipline. Master’s courses take one or two years to complete, with PhDs adding another three to seven years on top.

General science programs are taught through a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials, practical workshops, and laboratory sessions. Program content will be determined by the elective modules you select, but here are some common fundamentals:

  • Introductory biology
  • Introductory chemistry
  • Introductory physics
  • Environmental science
  • Immunology
  • Mathematical and statistical skills for scientists
  • Astronomy and space science
  • Forensic science
  • Microbiology
