What is Biomathematics?

Mathematical Biology (BioMath) is a highly interdisciplinary program at the intersection of mathematics, biology and computer science; offered by collaboration between the Mathematics and Biology Departments. BioMath majors all take a set of core courses, primarily during their freshman and sophomore years. Then, they specialize during their junior and senior years based upon student interest in computer science, mathematics, or biology; while retaining interdisciplinary training.

What Courses Will I Take?

A digital copy of the program plan for Applied Mathematics is available for printing here.

What Research Opportunities are Available?

The Undergraduate Biological and Mathematical training program is an exciting opportunity to do real research in mathematical biology under NSF sponsorship during the school year.  Students will have experience necessary to qualify for summer programs at MBI and the National Institution for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) as well.

What Can I do with a Degree in Biomathematics?

The interdisciplinary nature of the program enables undergraduates that are interested in combining Math, Computer Science and Biology to be more competitive for graduate programs and work place in Bioinformatics, Biostatistics, Biomedical Engineering, BioMath and Medicine.
