Bachelor of Science degree in  Biomedical Sciences

The Bachelor of Science degree in  Biomedical Sciences program prepares students for entry into health sciences  and analytical/research laboratories. Graduates possess the skills to perform  in a variety of science related positions in health departments, zoos, clinical  and environmental chemistry, pharmaceutics, and laboratories.

Graduates of the program will  have completed the prerequisites necessary to be successful in graduate  programs in the sciences as well as a multitude of professional programs such  as occupational and physical therapy, dentistry, pharmacy, and physician  assistant programs. However, a Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Sciences  can also be a terminal program for individuals who wish to work in laboratory  settings and other occupations.

Program Objectives

The following objectives are designed to  meet BSU mission and its objectives.

  • To develop  critical thinkers who are capable of meeting the evolving needs of the  biomedical field
  • To prepare  students for successful entry into professional and/or related graduate  programs
  • To develop  students analytical skills and laboratory techniques routinely applied in  scientific research
  • To develop  students written and verbal competencies, enabling them to formulate concise  and accurate reports of experimental work
  • To develop  students capable of using the scientific methods to design experimental studies  and statistically analyze the results
  • To develop  biomedical professionals who practice within a legal, ethical framework
