The Department of Natural Sciences offers degrees in biology and chemistry with course offerings in physics and engineering. The department also offers a degree in science education with a broad based emphasis in Biology.


BIOLOGY

The major in biology provides courses and course sequences leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in biology. The program prepares a student for professional careers and employment in biological sciences and teaching in the area of biology. Flexibility and design of the program aids in preparation for entrance into graduate, medical, pharmacy and dental schools, as well as other professional schools. Students interested in attending medical and dental schools choose from a select number of biology and chemistry courses and are advised by the Prefessional Advisors.


Students majoring in biology must complete a minimum of 32 hours in biology, including Biology 2111K, 2112K, 2211K, 2311K, 3101K, 3501K, 4001, 4222 and 4701K. Additionally, the Biology major must complete 13 hours of biology electives with a minimum of 8 hours at the 3000 and 4000 level. The electives will be chosen by the student with the advisor from a list of approved electives. Biology majors and minors must make a "C" or better in all biology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics courses. Students must meet the requirements of the Core Curriculum. Students must also take the Area Concentration Achievement Test (ACAT) in biology during the senior year.



CHEMISTRY

The major in chemistry provides courses and sequences leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry. The program is designed to follow the criteria for baccalaureate degrees set forth by the Committee on Professional Training of the American Chemical Society. The program prepares students for professional employment after graduation and also provides strong academic and laboratory experiences for those who wish to pursue graduate degrees in chemistry or attend professional schools.


Students must meet the requirements listed in the Core Curriculum. Students must also complete a minimum of 49 semester hours of chemistry. All students are required to earn at least a grade of "C" in all chemistry, biology, physics, and mathematics courses. All students are required to take the American Chemical Society standardized test in the courses for which the test is available. Students must also take the chemistry exit exam, the Major Field Test (MFT) during the senior year.



SCIENCE EDUCATION

The Bachelor of Science in Science Education is approved by Georgia Professional Standards Commission (PSC) and National Council of Accreditation for Teacher Education. The program leads to Level-4 teacher certification and is Broad field Science with biology emphasis.

 

Upon admission to Albany State University, students who have declared science education as their major must formally apply to the Teacher Education Program. Students must meet the following requirements to be fully admitted to the Teacher Education Program. These requirements include: 1) completion of a minimum 36 semester hours in core and prescribed courses with a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 or better; 2) successful completion of Basic Test for Georgia Assessment for Certification of Educators (GACE1); and 3) acceptable history of mental, emotional and physical health.  The exit exam for the program is GACE, which is the content area and must be taken by all students.



ENGINEERING

Albany State University offers two tracks of pre-engineering programs that lead to a Bachelor of Engineering degree from the Georgia Institute of Technology: (1) The Regents' Engineering Transfer Program (RETP) and (2) Dual Degree Program.


TRACK 1

The Regents Engineering Transfer Program (RETP) is a cooperative program between the Georgia Institute of Technology and Albany State University that allows students to complete the first two years of the engineering program at Albany State University and then transfer to Georgia Tech to their chosen field of engineering to complete the requirements of B.S. degree in engineering. Student will be admitted to Georgia Tech upon completion of the prescribed courses at Albany State University provided (s)he maintains an overall GPA of 2.7 as well as 2.7 in science and mathematics courses at ASU. At times Georgia Tech may add certain requirements for admission to junior level, which will equally be applied to Georgia Tech students also for advancing to the junior level in that field.


To be eligible for admission to the RETP at Albany State University student must be a resident of Georgia and must have a combined minimum SAT score of 1090 including minimum of 560 on the math and 440 on the verbal portion and a high school GPA of "B" or better. Students who prefer to live and study in a smaller community may also transfer to Georgia Tech Regional Engineering Program (GTREP) at coastal city of Savannah and receive the Georgia Tech engineering degree by completing their studies at Georgia Tech campus at Savannah.


TRACK 2

The Dual Degree Program is also a cooperative program between Georgia Tech and Albany State University that is designed for students who want to have a broad liberal arts background in addition to their chosen field of engineering. The student will complete approximately three years of study towards a program in Chemistry, Computer Science or Mathematics at Albany State University and then transfer to Georgia Tech for two additional years of study in his/her chosen field of engineering. Upon successful completion of the two programs, student will earn a B.A. degree from Albany State University and a B.S. degree in Engineering from Georgia Tech. The admission and transfer GPA requirements for the Dual Degree Program are the same as the RETP program though additional courses as described in this catalog are needed to qualify for transfer under the Dual Degree Program.


Students are advised to follow the customized list of courses as detailed in this catalog for each engineering discipline in order to complete their degree goal in the most efficient manner. Non-residents of Georgia and international students can also join the engineering program at ASU though the transfer to Georgia Tech will require a higher GPA. After completing the program one may also apply for transfer to any other ABET accredited engineering college. In the past, students have transferred to the engineering programs at Auburn, Florida A & M, Tuskegee, North Carolina A&T Mercer, Southern Polytechnic and University of Texas at Arlington.

REQUIRED COURSES FOR PRE-ENGINEERING AND DUAL DEGREE PROGRAMS


The program is structured to transfer students specifically to Georgia Institute of Technology but may equally be useful to transfer to any other ABET accredited engineering program. The minimum course requirement imposed by Georgia Tech for both RETP and Dual Degree programs is dependent on the type of engineering major students choose. However, additional courses are required by Albany State University before granting recommendation for transfer which guarantees placement in the junior year at Georgia Tech. The following course list is designed for RETP transfer. Dual Degree transfer students have to complete additional courses. However, at any time, students can, on their own, apply to Georgia Tech without completing the recommended courses and may get admitted.


Engineering Majors in Georgia Institute of Technology:

AE-Aerospace Engineering , BME-Biomedical Engineering, ChE-Chemical Engineering, CE-Civil Engineering EnvE-Environmental Engineering, EE-Electrical Engineering, CmpE-Computer Engineering, ISyE-Industrial & Systems Engineering, MSE-Materials Science Engineering, ME-Mechanical Engineering, NRE-Nuclear and Radiological Engineering, PTFE-Polymer, Textile & Fiber Engineering

  2. Students may need to take College Algebra (MATH 1111) & Pre-Calculus (MATH 1113) in order to take Calculus I (MATH 1211)
  3. In order to guarantee transfer to Georgia Institute of Technology under Regents Engineering Transfer Program (RETP), a student must successfully finish the entire curriculum as described above and secure an overall GPA of at least 2.7 as well as Mathematics and Science GPA of at least 2.7. 
  4. As Georgia Tech follows a no forgiveness policy, in calculating GPA, grades in all courses are counted including those taken at other institutions and those repeated here at Albany State University in order to improve the previous grade.
