Biophysics

Major preparation requirements

  • One and a half years of calculus with analytic geometry (3 semesters/4 quarters) through multivariable
  • Linear algebra
  • Differential equations
  • One and a half years of calculus-based physics (mechanics, electricity, magnetism, etc.)
  • One year of general chemistry
  • One year of organic chemistry
  • One year of biology with lab for the major (cellular, molecular, genetic)

Required by end of spring before transfer

  • One and a half years of calculus with analytic geometry (3 semesters/4 quarters) through multivariable
  • One year of calculus-based physics (mechanics, electricity, and magnetism)
  • Linear algebra

NOTE: It is strongly recommended that the remainder of major prep be completed prior to transfer.
