University of California, San Diego
Physics/Biophysics B.S.

The Department of Physics offers an undergraduate program that prepares students for careers in biophysics. This program leads to a degree in "B.S., Physics with Specialization in Biophysics." As a terminal degree, it is an excellent education for students who wish to work in the biotechnology industry, and provides an ideal background for students who plan to attend graduate or professional school in biological or biomedical fields. This program is intended for students with a strong interest in bringing the concepts and technical advances from the physical sciences to bear on issues in biology. The curriculum is chosen to prepare students as rigorously trained but broad-minded generalists, so that they may attack problems in the biological, biochemical, and biomedical sciences with the tools and confidence that come from rigorous training in the physical sciences.
