BioResource Research @ HMSC

  

The BioResource Research (BRR) curriculum requires biology, chemistry, physics, calculus, statistics, organic chemistry and biochemistry. Students must take an ethics class and a technical writing class. Each student chooses an option (area of concentration) and takes 29 credits of upper-division interdisciplinary coursework based on the option. In addition, students do 14 credits of mentored research, write a thesis, and give a seminar, all for course credit.
