The minor in Biomedical Sciences provides students with a useful complement to majors in Animal Science, Biochemistry, Biological Science, Health and Exercise Science, Human Development and Family Studies, Neuroscience, Psychology, and other biomedical science areas. The program offers a variety of courses which serve to broaden the background of students pursuing professional careers in biomedical sciences, human and veterinary medicine, and a variety of health-related disciplines. Candidates begin the program with a course in physiology. The remainder of the required 21 credits is selected to complement the student’s educational goals and interests.
