Minor in Biomedical Sciences

The minor in Biomedical Sciences provides students with a useful complement to majors in biological science, zoology, health and exercise science, animal science, psychology, and other biomedical science areas. The program offers directed study in human/animal systems to broaden the background of students pursuing professional careers in biomedical sciences, human and veterinary medicine, and a variety of health-related disciplines. The program requires completion of 21 credits in biomedical sciences with a required physiology course and BMS elective coursework to be selected from a variety of biomedical sciences courses to complement the student's educational goals and interests.​
