University Majors

California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo
Biological Sciences B.S. Concentration in Anatomy and Physiology

This degree program offers students a broad education in biology -- from molecules to ecosystems. It prepares students for the biomedical fields, for teaching, for certification as an Associate Ecologist, Fisheries Biologist, or Associate Wildlife Biologist. The B.S. in Biological Science degree gives students technical competency in a number of concentrations and is an excellent base for graduate school studies. The Anatomy and Physiology concentration offers courses required for students preparing for a career in medicine and health: physicians, dentists, physician assistants, nurses, dental assistants and more. It emphasizes learning and discoveries about the structure and function of animal and human bodies. This concentration offers classes and lab experiences usually reserved for first-year medical students. Chief among those is the ability to work with human cadavers - a rare offering in undergraduate programs. Because of this, our graduates who are accepted to medical schools report that they start their studies ahead of classmates from almost every other university -- even the Ivy Leagues. The concentration is ideal for students intending to apply to medical school, nursing school, dental school, or associated health career graduate programs.
