The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Biomedical Sciences covers a broad field of applied biology directed toward understanding health and disease. We educate students who will create a healthier future for humans and animals through the medical professions, biomedical innovation and discovery, global service and outreach.

This degree is offered on both the College Station campus and at the Texas A&M Higher Education Center in McAllen, TX. The B.S. in Biomedical Sciences is also awarded to students who complete the three year Early Admission Option to Professional Schools and one year of professional school.

This program emphasizes versatility in the biological and medical sciences. We prioritize a One Health approach by emphasizing the interconnectedness of animal, human, and environmental health. This approach brings together students with interest in medical careers that impact all three.
