The Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS) in Biomedical Science and Enterprise (BSEN) program prepares graduates for a range of exciting careers in the biomedical industry or advanced degrees in science, business or law. The program offers an innovative approach to education that combines studies in biomedical science, business, entrepreneurship and law, and teaches students the scientific, legal and commercial aspects of scientific discovery.

The BSEN program is a perfect fit for anyone passionate about patient care, intrigued by the scientific study of human diseases or interested in creating and marketing the next generation of disease-preventing therapeutics or wearable health devices. It's also for those who have dreams of working in a hospital, pharmaceutical company or biomed startup.

Our versatile graduates possess diverse skills sought by leading industry employers, and they’re ready to make a lasting difference that advances human health and improves the quality of human life.

The program is offered by the Institute for Biomedical Sciences in partnership with the College of Arts and Sciences, College of Law, Honors College, J. Mack Robinson College of Business and the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Institute.

Program Highlights

Flexible Curriculum

Students enrolled in the BSEN program will take core courses focusing on the intersection of biomedical science, business and law, but are also afforded ample space to explore their academic interests or pursue specific goals such as medical school prerequisites.

Career Awareness and Professional Development

Your first course with Biomedical Sciences faculty, Careers in Biomedical Science, will help you explore career opportunities that are available to students with this degree, build your networking and outreach skills, develop your professional presence and application materials, and develop an action plan to pursue your goals.

Signature Experience

Through the BSEN signature experience component of the curriculum, students will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience through internships and independent research that will further highlight their professional portfolio with the skills and experiences that future employers are looking for.

Instructor Access

The BSEN program maintains low class sizes in our core (BMSC) courses; students engage directly with their instructors and develop a close professional relationship with them, often throughout multiple course

Career Outcomes

The BSEN program opens doors to employment opportunities in academia, industry (biotech, biopharma, consumer and commercial), law, government, healthcare, criminal justice, policy and journalism. This includes a number of high-growth career fields such as healthcare, teaching, research and law (intellectual property and health).

  • 6 of the 10 fastest growing occupations nationwide are related to healthcare (nurse practitioners, occupational therapy assistants, home health and personal care aides, physical therapy assistants, medical and health services managers, and physician assistants)
  • Employment of medical scientists is projected to grow 17 percent from 2021 to 2031, much faster than the average for all occupations. About 10,000 openings for medical scientists are projected each year, on average, over the decade.
