Burnett School of Biomedical Sciences offers three majors: Biomedical Sciences,
Biotechnology, and Medical Laboratory Sciences.

  • Biomedical Sciences students can select a track
    (Molecular and Cellular Biology, Molecular Microbiology, Neuroscience), which
    is recommended if they are interested in pursuing research in those fields.
    Biomedical Sciences students seeking application to health professional schools
    (medical school, physician assistant, optometry, etc.) typically select the
    pre-professional track.

  • Biotechnology students are typically
    interested in attending graduate school to attain their Master’s or PhD
    degrees. This major has a heavy research focus, as well as a
    research/internship requirement for graduation.

  • Medical Laboratory
    is a terminal degree offered by BSBS. This is a limited-access program
    which requires an application process upon prerequisite completion around the
    end of students’ second year. The 30 students accepted into MLS every year take
    classes together and complete rotations in facilities across Florida before
    graduating and working in hospital, research, clinical, government, or forensic
