Biomedical sciences

The Biomedical Science major is designed to provide students with basic and applied knowledge in the field of biology as it applies to health and disease. In the first two years, students complete a common core foundation of basic biology in an interdisciplinary approach. The students will then choose from four concentrations: Molecular and Cell Biology, Medical Sciences, Computational Biology and Genomics, and Drug Design and Development. Courses in each concentration cover specialized knowledge in the field, technical electives, and a research thesis project. Upon graduation, students will be prepared to work in technical specialties in pharmaceutical, chemical, diagnostics companies or drug discovery centers. They would also be able to join research institutes and universities, continue postgraduate or professional degrees, or pursue leadership positions in their fields.
