If your interests are in a career in the health professions or in biomedical research, this is the place for you.  The Biomedical Sciences major is a unique opportunity for undergraduates to focus on human biology, from normal structure and function, to diseases, defense mechanisms, molecular biology, pharmacology, and the science behind current medicine. 

We challenge our students with demanding courses, but we also provide help for every student to succeed.  We measure the success of our efforts by the achievements of our graduates.

From small beginnings and two graduates in 1988, we now have about 400 majors, with 35-40 graduates each year.  Over 60% of our graduates have been accepted into postbaccalaureate programs; about 40% of our graduates have been accepted to medical schools.

We welcome visits, emails, and phone calls.  Feel free to contact us if you are interested in finding out more about Biomedical Sciences at South.
