Most of your courses will include laboratory exercises to provide you with hands-on science experience preparing you for pre-medical or pre-professional preparation, technical research positions, graduate training, and teaching.

We encourage you to get practical experience in research internships or by performing laboratory research with individual faculty members.
The following is the required course work under this concentration.  Keep in mind that some courses are taught on a rotating basis and we will help you lay out a four year plan.  To review complete course information, see the undergraduate catalog.
