Undergraduate Pathway

Top 15 Undergraduate Pathways in Science Studies 2019

Undergraduate pathways are educational tracks that typically offer students some flexibility in working toward a degree while improving language skills. These programs are generally useful for those wishing to pursue a degree in another country, where they may initially lack language fluency.

What is an undergraduate pathway in science studies? This educational track focuses on academic coursework in science, such as physics, biology, genetics, chemistry, and earth sciences. Students often participate in both lectures and lab or field work and may conduct research as individuals or as part of a group. This work is done concurrently with language studies to reach reading, writing, and speaking proficiency.

Scholars in this program tend to gain skills in problem-solving, observation, and analysis, as these all play a part in the application of the scientific method. People with these abilities can be highly sought after in the job market, as hiring managers and recruiters are interested in candidates who can adapt and change based on analyzing what’s working and what needs correcting.

Many wonder about the cost of undergraduate pathways in science. The cost varies based on the school and how long the program lasts, but typically, it’s possible to find options within a range of budgets.

Students following a science pathway may have numerous career options. Many choose to become researchers or research assistants, applying their coursework to environments where they seek to better the lives of others through scientific innovations. Jobs in the medical field, such as hospital lab technicians, nurses, and doctors, are also popular options. Those with an interest in passing knowledge down gravitate toward becoming teachers or professors.

Universities and colleges that have undergraduate pathways often have these programs in science. Interested individuals might also be able to find Internet-based alternatives. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
