The Department of Biomedical Sciences focuses on providing students with a broad undergraduate science curriculum from a human perspective.  The curriculum offers students a strong general education in the humanities, arts, social sciences, mathematics, and sciences, followed by in-depth study in the basic medical sciences. The program offers an optional Honors Research Thesis (BMD 499) to qualified students consisting of a laboratory apprenticeship in biomedical research under the mentorship of a faculty scientist. Students interested in the Honors Research Thesis option should contact Dr. Nancy Rice for information. The Biomedical Sciences curriculum establishes a foundation that prepares students to pursue post baccalaureate educational experiences in any biomedical discipline, particularly medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, optometry, as well as a Ph.D. degree in a variety of health and science related fields. In addition, the Department of Biomedical Sciences offers prerequisite course work for students wishing to in the Pat Capps Covey College of Allied Health Professions.
