Episode 72: Academic Disciplines, Sciences and Mathematics

October 23, 2023

There are so many important choices you'll make in college: which hall to live in, what to eat, how many extracurriculars to join. But most crucial is the decision of what you'll study.

For the next little while on College Admissions Insider, we'll be doing a deep dive into academic disciplines one episode at a time. This episode is dedicated to the sciences and mathematics.

We'll get to know the kinds of majors available in these disciplines, what math and science studies look like in college, and the careers you can break into post-graduation.

Our guest is Le Paliulis, associate dean of faculty for Bucknell's College of Arts & Sciences and professor of biology.
