About the Concentration

The Biomathematical Sciences Concentration allows students to integrate the study of mathematics, statistics, computer science and engineering with biology, biochemistry and neuroscience. In addition to the gateway course, the electives and the capstone, the concentration includes two hands-on research experiences in labs that use the tools of the mathematical and computer sciences to explore the meaning of biological phenomena. Students apply by the end of their sophomore year. Applications are processed on a rolling basis, but should be received before the end of the Spring advising period.

Funding for students to engage in Biomathematics research projects is now available through the NSF funded Four Colleges Biomathematics Consortium.
