Biology, Biomedical Concentration

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Department

This option offers a concentration in cellular and molecular biology and is recommended for those interested in biotechnology, biomedical research and professional school in medicine (veterinary as well as human), dentistry, podiatry and optometry. A minimum combined new SAT score of 1270 (sum of the reading and writing, and math section scores), or composite ACT score of 27 at the time of acceptance into Covenant College is strongly recommended for those choosing the biomedical concentration.

The core and distribution requirements for a major in biology are those listed for baccalaureate degrees  with the exception that CHE 121 General Chemistry I  is fulfilling the natural science lab requirement, and is already required for the major.
