You can opt for a double major or a minor or add the business or research options to your degree program. We recommend discussing these opportunities with your academic advisor during your first semester. Learn more about bachelor’s degrees and minors, the business option, and the research option.
Science and mathematics majors can also apply for the College of Sciences Undergraduate Research Science Awards (URSA). These awards are available for undergraduates to initiate research under the supervision of a College of Sciences faculty member.
Internships and Co-ops
Georgia Tech’s robust internship and cooperative education (co-op) programs allow students to augment their learning in the workplace. These experiences prepare students for careers in industry, government, and academic settings.
You will be assigned an advisor who has a Ph.D. in your major program.
Academic advisors are committed to guiding you and ensuring that you have access to resources and opportunities that can help you succeed academically and get a well-rounded preparation for life after a bachelor's degree.
Benefits of participating in either residential community include reserved sections of core courses, events with Georgia Tech faculty and researchers, co-curricular programming, and behind-the-scenes access to research, health, and other facilities of interest.
Interdisciplinary Programs for College of Sciences Majors
Science and mathematics majors can participate in various interdisciplinary programs to broaden their understanding of their major areas of study:
The Georgia Tech Urban Honeybee Project is an undergraduate research, education, and service program. Participants can conduct research about the effects of urban habitats on bees, volunteer to work in the rooftop apiary, and interact with the Atlanta community through educational programs for school children and pollination services for gardens and urban farms.
All our B.S. degree programs provide exceptional preparation for further study and careers in industry, education, and government sectors in jobs related to their disciplines. Some of our graduates continue their education by attending top-ranked Ph.D. and M.S. programs, as well as medical, pharmacy, and other professional schools.
