Biomedical Science Major (BS)
Breakthroughs in disease prevention and control often come out of the laboratories of scientists with a background in biomedical science. A unique blend of human biology, medicine and research, biomedical science is a growing field in the health professions.
Areas of Study
Biology, chemistry, calculus and physics form the foundation courses in the broad study of sciences from a human perspective. Classroom and laboratory experiences focus on the biological and chemical systems of humans, animals and microbes, including new and developing perspectives in the identification and treatment of disease.
Biomedical science majors can engage in collaborative research with a faculty mentor and/or complete related internships to gain experience for a career in the biomedical sciences and health professions.
