The Departments of Biology, Chemistry and Physics jointly offer a Baccalaureate Program for undergraduate students emphasizing the basic sciences associated with understanding the life processes. This degree provides an excellent foundation for people planning to enter a health care profession (medical school, pharmacy, dentistry, veterinary medicine), as well as graduate school in all areas chemistry and biology.
This major is coordinated by a committee of science division faculty, any of whom may be contacted regarding the major:
During January Session, various nontraditional courses are
offered. Dr. Jeff Osborne,
Manchester chemistry professor, takes a team of doctors, dentists
and Manchester University students to set up medical clinics in
developing countries. This trip was originally led by retired
Manchester chemistry professor, Dr. Ed Miller. As well as going to Nicaragua, the group has served in
six other Central American countries. Visit the Medical Practicum Homepage >
If you have an interest in biology-chemistry, you should visit Manchester University. Talk with faculty, sit in on classes, and see our facilities.
