# Undergraduate

The undergraduate program in Mathematical Biology is based on supervised, one-on-one research experinces and innovative coursework. Undergraduate researchers help develop novel models for biological phenomena, participate in collaborative groups, and travel to national meetings to present their research results. Academically, the undergraduate math biology program is the BioMathematics minor, which has two converging tracks (one for biological scientists and one for mathematical scientists and engineers).

#### A. Required Courses (28 credits)

#### B. Elective Courses (8-12 credits)
