University Majors

University of California, Los Angeles
Computational and Systems Biology(Pre)B.S.

Effective Fall 2007, admission to the pre-major is open to incoming freshman and transfer students. The major is designed primarily for highly motivated undergraduates interested in interdisciplinary studies in life sciences, behavioral sciences, and engineering and computer sciences. Preparation for the major consists of a broad foundation in basic sciences-chemistry, biology, physics, and mathematics, plus and introduction to psychology and computing. The major itself provides foundations in mathematical modeling, information processing, and control and system analysis, with an emphasis on quantitative ideas and methodologies. Mathematical and other analytical skills are essential in the major. It has several options for in-depth studies: a coherent integration of courses selected from the broader concentration areas of life sciences, behavioral sciences, or engineering and applied mathematical sciences, or an integration of courses from these areas, or from one of the designated concentrations in bioinformatics, biomedical systems, or computer studies.
