This program is designed for qualified undergraduates interested in combining work in the biological sciences with training in mathematics. While allowing substantial flexibility, the specialization requires seven biology courses beyond Introductory Biology, many of which are designed to emphasize quantitative approaches to biological problems, plus five mathematics courses beyond calculus. By offering a comprehensive foundation in math and biology, the Quantitative Biology curriculum prepares students for a diversity of career options while preserving flexibility for changing student interests. Students who complete the QB specialization will be well prepared for graduate study in fields such as quantitative and mathematical biology, biomedical sciences, environmental and ecological sciences, and medicine.
