*What counts as Science?

Current Science disciplines are: Biology (BIOL), Biochemistry (BCHM), Biophysics (BPHS), Chemistry (CHEM), Computer Science (CSE), Earth and Atmospheric Science (EATS), Geography (GEOG), Kinesiology and Health Science (KINE), Mathematics and Statistics (MATH), Physics and Astronomy (PHYS), Psychology (PSYC), Science and Technology Studies (STS).

Note that not every course in Kinesiology meets the Science definition, so check before registering in KINE courses.
