Bachelor of Science
As a student at Memorial, you have an incredible science lab right outside your window. Whether you are interested in exploring the ocean beyond, the forests next door or the rocks under your feet, Memorial is uniquely positioned to bring science right to you. Many of our graduates work as successful laboratory researchers, teachers and doctors. However, they also work beyond the scope of traditional careers in fields such as journalism, forensics and video game development. Students can choose from a full range of majors, minors and joint programs to pursue their areas of interest while getting excellent preparation for graduate work or careers in their discipline.
