Biology / Chemistry

For students interested in medicine or allied health fields, an interdisciplinary biology-chemistry major is recommended. This major includes seven courses in each discipline, to be selected in consultation with the faculty of each discipline.

Students interested in this major who present two units of high school biology or chemistry will be considered for advanced placement, determined by examination.

Majors in biology-chemistry may elect to earn the Bachelor of Science degree or the Bachelor of Arts degree. Major requirements are the same for both degrees.
