Bachelor of Science in Biology: Concentration In Health Science
The Health Sciences Concentration within the Biology major is intended to meet the needs of students who aspire to careers in the Allied Health Professions. Examples of these professions are Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant, Optometry, Pharmacy, Nursing, and others.
The innovative design of the curriculum allows the student to tailor a program of study to meet the prerequisites for admission to the professional program of their choice while, at the same time, receiving a broad-based education in Biology.
The curriculum assumes that the student will complete four years of education at Wilmington College, receive a Bachelor's degree and then move on to an Master's or Doctoral level program in the professional field of choice. The unique flexibility of the concentration allows it to be adapted to the wide variety of prerequisites required by the different professional programs.
