The Bachelor of Science in Biophysics fulfills all medical and pharmacy school requirements. Biophysics students interested in research careers can pursue a graduate degree in biophysics, biology, molecular biology or neuroscience, as well as the combined MD/PhD degree in medical physics, health physics or nuclear medicine. Biophysics seeks to answer a diverse array of questions: How three-dimensional molecular structure determines biological functions; how are genes turned on and off; how do animals and plants respond to light; how do animals respond to sound and smell, how cells move, and how the nervous system works. The biophysics major provides the broad math and science skills necessary to succeed in this interdisciplinary environment. Program Goals: After completing this program, students should: understand fundamental principles of physics and their ability to apply these principles for understanding how biological systems work understand fundamental principles of chemistry and their ability to apply these principles for understanding how biological systems work understand fundamental principles of molecular biology and their ability to apply these principles for understanding how biological systems work use mathematical methods to study physical models methods include single and multivariate calculus, coordinate systems (vector algebra and vector differential operators, Fourier series, ordinary and partial differential equations, boundary value problems, matrices and determinants, and functions of complex variables have oral and written communication skills that enable students to explain their work to people from a wide variety of backgrounds Careers: A biophysics degree fulfills all medical and pharmacy school requirements. Biophysics students interested in research careers can pursue a graduate degree in Biophysics, Biology, Molecular Biology or Neuroscience, as well as the combined MD/PhD degree in medical physics, health physics or nuclear medicine.
