Our Bachelor of Arts in Natural and Applied Sciences provides an opportunity for students with diverse interests in STEM to combine courses from a variety of departments that will prepare them to achieve their academic and career goals. This degree provides a strong foundation for an interdisciplinary career such as in health advocacy, research or analytics. It is also designed for students who wish to continue their studies with a graduate or professional program.
The 30 hours of upper-division coursework for this degree may be taken within CASE and from other FIU colleges or schools as appropriate. A 3-credit capstone course helps students choose a pathway to a career or postgraduate education.
This track lets students in sciences or humanities build medical knowledge and skills, preparing for med school or another health-related career. Students complete pre-medical requirements as part of a second major, complementing the first major of their choice.
College to Career
We offer students a capstone course that allows them to reflect on their interests, experiences, skills and strengths. They then connect this knowledge with available career opportunities.
Students also have the option of exploring their career interests by pursuing internships. Liberal studies and interdisciplinary studies students can earn course credit for pursuing an internship by signing up for IDS 3949 and IDS 4949. Enrollment requires approval by associate director Dr. Heather Blatt.
