Explore Science (undecided)

All first-year students interested in science careers have the option of choosing the College of Science as their academic home before declaring a specific major with the college. This allows students to fully explore the breadth and depth of our available degrees, and the majors associated with these degrees before committing to a course of study.

The College of Science offers degrees in life and social science (biological science, microbiology, systems biology, biochemistry, psychology, economics, neuroscience), in physical and material science (chemistry, geosciences, physics, nanoscience, nanomedicine), and in quantitative science (mathematics, statistics, computational modeling and data analytics).

We want science-oriented majors to make informed decisions based on their interests, passions, skills, and career plans. Prospective students should visit the Office of Undergraduate Admission online to learn about the admissions process for Virginia Tech’s College of Science.
