Bachelor of Arts (A. B.) or Bachelor of Science (S. B.)
The Biology-Chemistry major is designed to prepare students for those fields in which a knowledge of both chemistry and biology is required. Courses in biology and chemistry help students integrate principles from these disciplines into unified concepts which cross disciplinary boundaries. A research component is included.
This major is particularly well suited for those students interested in the health professions (pre-medicine, veterinary, or dentistry), as well as for preparation for advanced studies in bio-chemistry, immunology, molecular biology and genetics.
In addition to the required number of credits needed to complete the major, all students must also fulfill the general degree requirements in order to graduate.
