The BSc. Programme replaced the BSc. General Course in the year 2005. The first batch of the new course passed out in 2008. The aims behind replacing the old course were
1. To make it more comprehensive and application based;
2. To provide students a broad-based exposure to the critical domains of the sciences i.e. Physics, Chemistry, Biology, in both single science domain and multiple science domain
3. To provide students adequate background of Mathematical Sciences, and tools and techniques such as Computer Applications, Modern Instrumentation and Electronics, and
4. To enable students to enhance their technical writing and communication skills;
5. To provide students adequate exposure to global and local concerns that explore the many aspects of societal relevance in Environmental Science; and
6. To give students an opportunity to explore the multidisciplinarity in science, particularly in those emerging areas that lie at the intersection(s) of physical, chemical, life and earth
Sciences including such cutting-edge areas like astrobiology, theoretical biology, geophysics, molecular paleontology, biogeochemistry, etc.
The B.Sc. Programme is intended to provide a grounding in several different areas of science instead of focussing on one. There are two variants of this programme offered at St. Stephen's College - B.Sc. Programme (Physical Sciences) in which students study Physics, Mathematics, and Chemistry in the second and third years; and B.Sc. Programme (Applied Physical Sciences) in which students study Physics, Mathematics, and Computer Science in the second and third years. Both streams have a common Foundation Course in the first year covering Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Computer Applications, History of Science, and English.
B.Sc. (Programme) students may go on to do Master's degrees in Physics, Mathematics, or Chemistry / Computer Science. They are also well-suited to inter-disciplinary post-graduate programmes and courses that require a broad background in science.
