Educating the Next Generation of Biomedical Science Innovators
What is the BSEN program?
The Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies 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 degree 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, interested in creating and marketing the next generation of disease-preventing therapeutics or wearable health devices or has dreams of working in a hospital, pharmaceutical company or biomed startup.
Our versatile graduates possess a diverse skill set 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.
How is the BSEN program unique?
Studies show that some employers are concerned that STEM graduates lack skills beyond technical knowledge. Employers are looking for personnel with a combination of technical and soft skills, such as leadership experience, problem solving, critical thinking, teamwork and written and oral communication.
The BSEN program seeks to bridge this skills gap and help students develop these desired skills by requiring courses across several disciplines and providing hands-on learning experiences through research and internships. This unique approach to education ensures that our graduates stand out from the competition as they pursue rewarding career opportunities.
The institute coordinates both graduate and undergraduate admissions. Students seeking an undergraduate degree will apply through university admissions and receive additional support from the central office.
