Bachelor of Science in Biology with an Emphasis in Pre-Medicine

For those individuals who are seeking a career in medicine, dentistry, optometry or as a veterinarian, a Bachelor of Science in Biology with an Emphasis in Pre-Medicine degree creates the necessary educational foundation. While not required, completing a pre-med degree prepares graduates for the medical college admission test (MCAT), optometry admission test (OAT), or dental admission test (DAT) and includes specialized coursework focused on preparing students for success in their graduate studies and professional careers.

Students will explore a range of subjects including sociology, psychology, ethical principles in health care and global health issues. Classroom lectures and lab work provide ample opportunity to study general and organic chemistry as well as the principles of biochemistry. Students of the GCU pre-med program will study genetics, microbiology, human anatomy and physiology including the unique opportunity to study gross anatomy in our own cadaver lab.
