The B.A. in biophysical science is designed to serve students with strong interests in physical and mathematical aspects of the life sciences. The signature of the program is an exceptionally broad training in physics, biology, and chemistry. There are excellent scientific and professional opportunities for students who have acquired this broad grounding; bioinformatics, proteomics, and cell signaling are examples of subfields that benefit from a broad background in biophysical science. In conjunction with the other elements of the liberal arts core, graduates of the program are very well prepared to pursue careers in many sectors of the economy. The major is also well suited to students interested in graduate work in the health professions or in the biophysical sciences.
