General Studies Customize Your Education

The Choice is Yours

The WSU General Studies program offers the perfect opportunity to customize your education. You can pick two or three fields of study in the physical, natural, and life sciences and we’ll help you create an academic plan that prepares you for a strong future in our ever-changing global society.


Encompassing physical, life, and natural science fields, science describes the world around us and explains how things work. Disciplines include chemistry, physics, biology, and mathematics as well as areas from applied technology studies.

The basic medical sciences option focuses on coursework in biological sciences and chemistry required by many post-graduate health professions programs, including medicine, dentistry, ophthalmology, physical therapy, and nursing schools.
