Pre Med Major
Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences–Premedical Biology
The Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences – Premedical Biology seeks to educate students in unifying themes in biology, while encouraging them to expand their knowledge in more specialized subject areas. The department offers six undergraduate majors in which a student may specialize: aquaculture, conservation biology and ecology, general biology, marine biology, molecular biology and premedical biology. The curriculum for the premedical biology major is organized so that in the first two years students learn concepts fundamental to all biological sciences, and in the last two years students follow their own interests in selecting courses that are more specialized.
The premedical biology major is designed for students interested in becoming physicians. It is also appropriate for students interested in veterinary medicine and allied health professions (such as physician's assistant, physical therapy or pharmacy). The chair of the premedical biology major program serves as Florida Tech's premedical advisor, and also organizes a premedical evaluation committee to provide evaluation letters for students applying to medical school. Students graduating from the premedical biology major have had an excellent acceptance rate into medical and professional schools.
