Six U of M majors are available as both a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in the College of Liberal Arts and as a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in the College of Science and Engineering: Astrophysics, Chemistry, Computer Science, Earth Sciences, Mathematics, and Physics.
The curriculum requirements for both degrees are similar; they share core requirements and offer students opportunities to specialize. In general, the Bachelor of Science requires more technical courses and the Bachelor of Arts requires more liberal arts electives and credits in a second language.
If you are unsure whether the B.A. or B.S. would be a better fit for you, an admissions counselor can talk with you about degree requirements as well as your unique skills, interests, and professional goals. Contact the Office of Admissions.
Definition of Diversity
Diversity is a core value of the University of Minnesota. We define "diversity" in the broadest sense of the word. Enrolling a diverse student body—with students bringing differing experiences, talents, and perspectives to their scholarly community—is essential to achieving the development outcomes of a University of Minnesota education. Our university community is strengthened by our students representing different races, economic backgrounds, geographic origins, genders, religions, ethnicities, sexualities, talents, and beliefs.
University of Minnesota students benefit when students and scholars with an array of identities, experiences, and perspectives learn together in an environment that allows them to share their perspectives and challenge and support one another in their learning. Discovery and the exchange of ideas is central to the undergraduate experience, and this exchange is enhanced by a broad variety of personal experiences and viewpoints.
About the "Outcomes of Undergraduate Education"
The University has a list of outcomes we expect all students to achieve by graduation—through their experiences inside and outside of the classroom, and through their interactions with other members of the University of Minnesota community. The outcomes are grouped together into "Student Learning Outcomes" and "Student Development Outcomes."
The University of Minnesota Student Learning Outcomes and Student Development Outcomes underscore the important partnership of students, faculty, and staff in supporting student learning in the broadest sense. The outcomes provide comprehensive goals that ensure University of Minnesota graduates are responsible and engaged citizens prepared to participate in and meet the challenges of a complex, diverse, and global society.
