Students studying biophysics will take courses in areas such as general chemistry, calculus, biology, physics, systems physiology, and biomedical imaging. They will have opportunities for research, both in and out of the classroom. They will develop:
Students will learn to formulate, deconstruct, and solve complex biophysical problems using mathematics.
Experience with experimental and/or theoretical research projects
Students will have the opportunity to do experiments and/or theoretical studies to understand physical phenomenon in the context of biophysics.
Students will learn how and where to find relevant and reliable scientific information including the web, online databases, and libraries.
Computer tools and instrumentation
Students will learn how to use mathematical and experimental software packages and experimental equipment necessary for doing biophysics.
COMMUNICATION OF SCIENTIFIC MATERIAL TO COLLEAGUES
Students will learn to write well-organized, logical, and scientifically sound biophysics research papers. They will be able to present clear, well-organized, logical, scientifically sound, and audience-appropriate oral reports on biophysics topics.
KNOWLEDGE OF CURRENT ISSUES IN BIOPHYSICS
Students will learn about major issues in their field and be able to critically evaluate topics in emerging theories of biophysics.
