Biomedical Sciences is the broad field of applied biology as related to human/animal health and disease. It involves the study of structure and function from the molecular to systemic level. The major in Biomedical Sciences provides students with a strong four-year education with rigorous coursework in anatomy and physiology - supported by study in chemistry, cell biology, physics, genetics, biochemistry, microbiology, calculus and statistics, with a liberal education in the humanities and social sciences.
The Biomedical Sciences degree will provide students with many opportunities for further study and employment in their area of specialization. The coursework is designed to prepare students for health-related graduate and professional programs. Post-graduate opportunities will include further studies in physiology, neuroscience, and pathology. Employment opportunities will include positions in laboratory research, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and other biomedical and health-related areas.
