Why should you major in the natural sciences rather than in the separate disciplines of biology, chemistry, physics or mathematics or computer science?  Since Natural Sciences is by definition a more balanced approach to the study of the universe and the physical world, the courses you will study will be spread broadly over all of these areas.  As a result, you will acquire knowledge which will help you to enter the career fields of meteorology, biophysics, biostatistics, scientific librarian or work in a science-oriented industry.
