Admissions

Admission Requirements

Entering students typically have a background in biology or related disciplines. Although there are no rigid prerequisites students will usually have taken as a minimum chemistry (through organic), one year of calculus, one year of physics, a course in biostatistics, as well as a relevant background in the biological sciences. Deficiencies in these areas may be remedied by course work and independent reading.
