About the Computational Biology Concentration

Students may pursue a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science. 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.

Become a Computational Biology Concentrator

  1. Fill out the application on ASK.
  2. Review the Computational Biology concentration requirements and complete the Program Plan in ASK. Work with your advisor and the CCMB Academic Programs Coordinator to ensure you are meeting the requirements.
