Biomedical Sciences Students looking at a heart

If you are pursuing a career in medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, physical therapy, optometry, biomedical research, physician assistant, and occupational therapy or other health-related fields, biomedical sciences is definitely the major for you. The biomedical sciences major combines dynamic human health science courses with quality general education. Students are encouraged to get involved in organizations that develop leadership skills.

Opportunities to develop health care research projects enhance the strong science-based curriculum that prepares students for graduate school. A biomedical sciences major will have a unique advantage to complete courses such as histology, immunology,
epidemiology, endocrinology and genetics that are often limited to graduate students. Providing these courses at the undergraduate level gives our biomedical sciences graduates a competitive edge for admission to graduate and professional programs.
