Science has become an important component in the K-12 curriculum in American schools-but less so than reading and mathematics. At the end of the twentieth century reading and mathematics received more attention, government support, and focus for testing. It was assumed that reading and mathematics must be mastered first and that these skills were essential before the study of science and social studies. Science is often not taught daily in elementary schools, does not receive major attention in middle schools, and is often organized around disciplines that emphasize college preparation in high schools.

Whether you major in accounting or zoology, there are some common college courses that will eventually wind up in your class schedule. General education requirements usually include basic college courses in English, mathematics, the humanities, and more; learning the requirements at your school will help save time and effort if you take them early in your college career and get them out of the way.
