Exploring the Sciences at UNC

 

Each week leading up to the Early Action deadline, we’ll be highlighting academic opportunities around campus. This week we’re focusing on the sciences.

Many students come to Carolina knowing they want to study science, but are unsure what type of science they want to focus on. College offers the opportunity to explore different sciences you might not have been exposed to in high school.

You might want to go to medical school, but should you major in biology or chemistry? You could do either — or something completely different like the Biomedical Engineering program.

Maybe you’ve always wanted to work with dolphins, but aren’t sure how a land-locked Chapel Hill fits into that picture. Did you know you can minor in Marine Sciences at Carolina and even spend a semester in Morehead City, N.C. or travel to international field sites?

Follow along on the blog and on Twitter for a chance to explore all that UNC has to offer in the sciences. Even if you’re not sure you want to study science in college, you might be surprised at the interesting programs you learn about.
