Biomedical Science

The biomedical science major will provide a strong foundation for students interested in medical school, veterinary school, graduate school, and other careers that require a well-rounded science education. Students in the biomedical science major will receive a rich education through a rigorous, interdisciplinary scientific regimen of continuously increasing complexity. Students will become well versed in the fundamental areas of biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics, and will gain a deeper understanding of the genetic, molecular, and biochemical bases of life. The major is supported by the Cooperative Education Program and local community agencies, which provide students opportunities to gain valuable and necessary pre-professional work experience.

Many medical and related graduate programs have their own specific requirements, including, but not limited to, additional English composition, psychology, sociology, further statistics and mathematics, and foreign languages. Students are strongly advised to speak with their faculty advisors during their first year to plan their educational trajectory appropriately.
