Department of Mathematics

This undergraduate track
should be of
interest to mathematically inclined students also interested in
Biology. The
track provides preparation for graduate work in computational biology
or
bioinformatics. This is a major
that can include the basic pre
med
expectations. It is part of
the interdisciplinary offerings in the department of Mathematics; there
are
currently Master’s and PhD programs in Biomedical Mathematics that are
closely
related to this undergraduate major.
