The Biomedical Sciences undergraduate curriculum consists of human-oriented basic science courses that can be tailored to an individual’s career interests.

For example, pre-dental students can take courses such as head and neck anatomy, oral histology, and craniofacial development and genetics. Pre-medical students may wish to take advantage of human-oriented classes in pharmacology, pathology, histology, human physiology, and human anatomy, including a course in which human cadavers are dissected.

As a result, undergraduate students in the Department of Biomedical Sciences are well-prepared for a wide variety of health care career paths.
