The Natural and Applied Sciences program provides students with a liberal arts education emphasizing the basic sciences and marketable lab/field skills. Besides the traditional Bachelors of Arts degree, the major includes several specific pathways that can also lead to Teacher Certification or transitions into the Masters of Occupational Therapy program while attaining a BA in Natural and Applied Sciences.  

Education certification in K-8 General Elementary Education and in Secondary Life Science Education are examples of these education pathways.  For more information on these education related pathways click here. You may also contact Jim Bradley at (207) 753-6618 or jbradley@usm.maine.edu

Transitioning to the Masters of Occupational Therapy program is also possible while studying within the Natural and Applied Sciences. This can be done through the MOT Jumpstart 3+2 program.
