Associate Professor Jodi Cooley, Director

The B.S. degree in biophysical sciences bridges the disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics, connecting the complexity of life to the laws of physics. The program at SMU consists of core courses in biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, and the School of Education. It includes the entire SMU pre-health curriculum and additional courses that provide advanced learning in order to provide a strong foundation for careers in medicine or research. The remaining term hours can be obtained from a selection of elective courses that are available in the degree plan. This program is advised in the SMU Department of Physics. Students obtaining a B.S. degree in Biophysical Sciences can not receive a minor or second major in Chemistry or Physics. In addition, no advanced Biology courses, except Genetics and Cell Biology, can be double counted towards a minor or second major in Biology.
