Biomedical Science – Program Features
Biomedical Science combines the fields of biology and medicine. Beyond the core biology courses you can study human anatomy, immunology, and molecular genetics, all designed to prepare you for generalist positions in health and natural sciences or an advanced degree.
Supplementing your undergraduate education with a master’s degree can help you learn more about specialized fields, which could give you a better chance at earning a higher income. Professional career opportunities include clinical laboratory science and research to study infectious diseases, discover new drugs, or write about the latest scientific discoveries.
