Students pursuing the ScB have the option of electing a concentration in Computational Biology with one of three focus areas:
- Computer Sciences
- Biological Sciences
- Applied Mathematics & Statistics
Both programs require a senior capstone experience that pair students and faculty in creative research collaborations.
In order to be considered a candidate for honors, students will be expected to maintain an outstanding record in concentration courses. In addition, students should take at least one semester, and are strongly encouraged to take 2 semesters, of reading and research with a CCMB faculty member or approved advisor to complete their research. Students must submit to a public defense of their theses to be presented in an open forum to the CCMB community scheduled in the latter half of April.
