Overview

Although the classes within the Physical Science major at Kansas State University are the same for the BA or the BS degree, the college’s basic requirements for the two degrees will differ as described in the College of Arts and Sciences section.

The significant difference between the BA and the BS for the Physical Science degree is that the BA requires the equivalent of a level 4 in a foreign language sequence.

Both the BA and the BS require a minimum of 120 credits for degree completion. 

A minimum of 37 of these credits must be from classes within the major. Students must also complete the College of Arts and Sciences basic requirements for degree. These requirements can be individualized so working with an advisor is recommended.

Students majoring in Physical Science must earn grades of C or better in all courses required for the major, including electives and transfer work.
