Overview

In completing the degree requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Premedicine offered by the University of Dayton, a student can meet all of the entrance requirements for the health professional school of their choice while still retaining the greatest possible latitude in selecting science and non-science courses of personal interest.

How is the major distinctive:

  • biomedical science curriculum which meets requirements for health professional school admission
  • provides students with required clinical experience in the Dayton area
  • includes 15-18 semester hours for self-designed study

Courses in biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics comprise the science core of the major. A complement of humanities and social sciences courses are also required to provide students with a well-rounded curriculum that satisfies the typical entry requirements of post undergraduate health care training. Both degrees offer a flexible curriculum that can be tailored to suit personal interests and career aspirations.
