Biology majors interested in the biomedical sciences wishing to tailor their undergraduate biology degree to their interests and future employment, including preparation for medical, dental, veterinary, and other health professional schools, may pursue the Biomedical Science option areas as part of their Biology degree program. This option area has a modified core (including the option of taking upper division Human Anatomy and Physiology (Bi330) as a part of the core), upper division electives, mathematics, and physical science requirements and is designed to better prepare these students for their future courses of study.


Biology Degree with Biomedical Science Option

  1. Complete the biology core requirements with the following modifications:
    1. Ecology (BI 340) is not required; however, it may be taken for elective credit (see below).
    2. In addition to the existing capstone option, a student in this track may satisfy the capstone requirement by completing a minimum of 3 credits of Practicum: Capstone (BI 409) and 1 credit of Capstone Thesis (BI 404).
