The program provides thorough preparation to students intending to pursue careers in medicine, teaching, research, industry, or the allied health professions.

Contribution to Core

Biological Sciences offers courses numbered BISC 1000-1006, which count as life science courses to fulfill part of the natural science core requirement. The two-course sequence BISC 1403-1404, when taken in sequence, will fulfill both natural science course requirements.
