Courses by Research Track

The BME graduate program does not require students to take specific courses to complete their degree, with the exception of the BME seminar (BIOL 2230/2240), which should be taken every semester. The "2-2-2" course requirement is in place to supplement students' understanding of their ScM of PhD thesis research. Individual students should decide which courses are most appropriate for their background and research goals in conjunction with their advisor. To help with this planning, the below list shows courses that are commonly taken by students in a given track, as well as other general courses taken by students in any track.
