Our curriculum prepares students for graduate school and professional programs such as medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, pharmacy, and related fields. To enhance professional development and employment potential, faculty members encourage students to participate in undergraduate research opportunities to gain practical experience. Throughout the program students learn how to apply the scientific method to solving problems, designing experiments, analyzing data, and evaluating conclusions.
