What can I get course credit in?
Undergraduates with any major can enroll! This is an introductory sequence, without prerequisites. No science background is assumed (other than a normal high school program). The majority of participants are usually non-science majors satisfying general education requirements, but the course work also satisfies the prerequisite requirements for majors courses in geology and environmental science.
The courses offered in this program satisfy the Ohio Board of Regents General Education requirement for Natural Science with lab (GEOL) and Social Sciences (ACS and ENVS) as well as the Cultural Diversity in American and International Perspectives requirements. Students successfully completing the program will receive 18 semester credits at Bowling Green State University for:
