PS/HA Cognate: Students must complete a minimum of 1 People & Society (PS) cognate and 1 Humanities & Arts (HA) cognate, to be selected from the list of available cognates.  Each cognate should be a minimum of 3 courses (9 credit hours). Students in the Premed Concentration are highly encouraged to choose cognates that include PSY 110 and SOC 101.


Advanced Bioscience Elective is to be chosen from BIL 250, BIL 255, BIL 268, CHM 202, or BMB 401 Students should verify admission requirements of their medical school of interest to verify Adv. Bioscience requirements, e.g. organic chemistry II, biochemistry, or both.


Technical Lab Elective is selected from BME 506, BME 507, BME 566 or BME 395; Science Lab Elective is selected from a science lab complementing the Adv. Bioscience Elective (e.g., CHM or BIL lab).


Technical Electives are chosen from BME course offerings (300 level & above) with the approval of the advisor. Any other course selected need to be approved by the advisor and the department chairperson.

 Students planning on taking the MCAT should take BMB 401 Biochemistry For The Biomedical Sciences as their first Adv. Bioscience Elective.
