The Biomedical Sciences major is an interdisciplinary program combining core courses in biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, psychology and sociology. Students study the sciences from a life-oriented perspective and develop the scientific proficiency and analytical skills necessary for a career in a variety of health professions.
The curriculum provides the prerequisites to enter medical, veterinary and other allied health professional schools post-graduation. The courseload allows students to double-major or minor in other fields.
LEARNING GOALS FOR THE MAJOR IN BIOMEDICAL SCIENCES
- Demonstrate foundational knowledge of biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, and the social and behavioral sciences.
- Demonstrate proficiency in the core concepts required for entrance to professional biomedical graduate programs.
- Integrate and apply the natural, behavioral and social sciences to current biomedical issues.
