The Biology Department offers a B.S. Degree in Biology and a minor in Biology. These degrees provide the foundation for careers in wide array of fields. Some examples of associated careers include: allergist, botanist, conservation scientist, dentist, environmental health analysist, geneticist, lab technician, microbiologist, mycologist, nutritionist, pharmacist, physical therapist, physician assistant, teachers, veterinarian, virologist, wildlife biologist and many others.


The Chemistry Department offers a B.S. Degree in Chemistry and a minor in Chemistry and preparation in the fields of environmental analysis, research and development, safety, medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, production and management.


The Geology and Physics Department offers a B.S. Degree in Geology with two options: a “Traditional Option” (Option A), and an “Earth and Environmental Science Education Option” (Option B). Option A is recommended for students who plan to pursue geology as a profession. In addition to traditional course work, the geology program includes extensive field and research experiences, including a two-semester undergraduate research project requiring students to do write a Senior Thesis and make a presentation on their work. Students who have completed Option A have gone on to complete Masters and PhD’s in geosciences, or have gone to work in the environmental, oil or mining industries. Option B allows the student to get a strong geology and science core along with 18 hours of undergraduate education courses, helping to prepare the student for Teacher Alternative Preparation Programs (TAPP) for middle and high school science teaching, yet still allowing them to work in the geosciences. (Important Note: Option B is not a teacher certification program; students must pursue certification after they complete the program.) Finally, students majoring in other areas may pursue a Minor in Geology.

Regents’ Engineering Pathway Program (REPP)

Georgia Southwestern State University’s Geology and Physics Department also houses the Regents’ Engineering Pathway Program (REPP). The REPP was established in 1986 to expand the availability of engineering education opportunities for Georgians. In its current structure, students complete two or more years of pre-engineering courses at participating University System of Georgia (REPP Partner) institutions and then transfer to Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia Southern University, Kennesaw State University, the University of Georgia, or Mercer University (REPP Engineering Institutions) to complete a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering. In addition, a transfer articulation has been negotiated with the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering at Auburn University, further broadening the BSE options for GSW students.

Computer Science

The Department of Computer Science offers a B.S. Degree in Computer Science and a minor in Computer Science. Computer Science is a multifaceted discipline that encompasses a broad range of topics. At one end of the spectrum, computer science focuses on the theoretical capabilities of computers and on the properties of various general problems and algorithms. On the other hand, more applied end of the spectrum, computer science deals with techniques for the design and construction of machines, and with advanced applications of computers in all aspects of our society.

Information Technology

The Department of Computer Science offers a B.S. Degree in Information Technology with Option in Business, a B.S. Degree in Information Technology with Option in Multi Media, and a minor in Information Technology. Information technology is the application of computers to store, retrieve, transmit and manipulate data, often in the context of a business or other enterprise. This academic program prepares students to work in network and database administration, information security, and web development.


The Department of Mathematics offers a B.S. in Mathematics, a B.S. in Mathematics with Option in Computational Science and Engineering, a B.S. in Mathematics with Teacher Certification, and a minor in Mathematics. Career opportunities are many and varied. Banking, business, computer science, actuarial science, insurance, civil service and education are just a few.
