Welcome to the School of Biological Sciences
Students in the School of Biological Sciences may elect to pursue a sequence in Biomathematics, a course of study that provides students with a unique and strong cross-disciplinary training in biology and mathematics.
To learn more about the interdisciplinary program in Biomath, click here to check out the Biomath Website.
To contact, please visit the Biomathematics contact page.
The sequence is designed first to give students a solid foundation in mathematics (core courses), then training in one of two biological areas that use specific types of mathematical applications to address biological questions (emphases).
Before entering the sequence, students should have two semesters of calculus and one semester of linear algebra. This is a 30-hour program including 2 hours of BSC 420.36 and 4 hours of thesis BSC 499. All students are required to take the sequence core courses of 20 hours (BSC 420.36, 499; MAT 340, 341, 350, and 351).
