Biology Department Announces New Programs in Neuroscience, Research, Pre-Med


The Department of Biology at Texas Woman's University is pleased to introduce the following new programs. We are expanding our degree offerings with two new tracks in the bachelor of science in biology degree, two new undergraduate minors, and one new undergraduate certificate. All of the new degree plans will be available starting in the fall of 2020.

We have created three new degree options to support pre-health students: a pre-medical track and a pre-physician assistant track in the bachelor of science in biology, and a pre-med minor. All three of these plans include all prerequisite coursework necessary for applying to professional school. Additionally, the pre-medical track and minor are designed to provide students with a strong foundation for preparing to take the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT).

For students interested in neuroscience, the Department of Biology has partnered with the Department of Psychology & Philosophy to offer a new minor in neuroscience. This minor allows undergraduates to approach the study of the human brain from an interdisciplinary perspective.

The new undergraduate certificate in biological research provides a unique opportunity for undergraduates to gain hands-on experience in laboratory research by working side-by-side with a faculty mentor. Students pursuing the certificate also receive training in scientific communication and have the opportunity to present their research results in a public forum.
