Biomedical Science combines the fields of biology and medicine in order to study and improve human health. The Department of Biomedical Science is composed of a group of professional educators and medical doctors who provide education in medical and health-related fields.
The Biomedical Sciences major is an interdisciplinary program designed for students specifically wishing to pursue a career in the health sciences. The students of Biomedical Science will focus their study on chemistry, biology, and the anatomy and physiology of the human body. After completing the required common core classes, students will specialize in a concentration area of interest through upper-level courses. Graduates of the Biomedical Science program will go on to become healthcare professionals or pursue graduate/professional studies in a wide variety of medical and health-related fields.
This program also offers an Integrative Health Science concentration, a first for the State of New York. This concentration provides a unique combination which instills in students an appreciation for the genuine well-being of each individual through the perspective of a preventive, integrative and holistic approach to health sciences, combining state-of-art advances in western medicine with wisdom from the time-honored traditions of the ancients.
