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, physician 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.
A Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Sciences with an Equine Studies concentration is also available for students with an equine passion and desire to pursue a career in this field. This concentration prepares students for admission to graduate programs in Veterinarian Medicine and offers graduates a well-rounded educational opportunity necessary to be successful in the equine industry. Along with the necessary pre-vet curriculum, the concentration offers students the opportunity to develop hands-on experience in handling horses, understanding their genetic composition, equine nutrition, health and disease monitoring, and a plethora of management and training opportunities. Students selecting the Equine Studies concentration will apply their education in shadowing equine professionals such as veterinarians, farriers, and trainers during their internship courses. Equine Studies concentration courses will vary from those of the general program (see Program Outline with Equine Studies concentration below).
