Allied Health prepares students for a career or further graduate study in a broad range of allied health careers, applying scientific knowledge to the subject areas of biology, anatomy, physiology, and associated scientific disciplines.
Biochemistry majors gain a knowledge base of biology and chemistry to relate theories, problem-solving techniques, laboratory applications, and instrumentation procedures in this field of study.
Biology Majors learn traditional biology appropriate for entry into an accredited graduate program and apply the scientific method and appropriate biological knowledge and theories.
This program offers the following areas of study: Ecological, Microbiological, Molecular, Neurobiological, and Organismal.
The minor in biology gives students a solid foundation in general biology, cell biology, biology of microorganisms, and general chemistry, and the opportunity to explore other biology subfields such as neurobiology, genetics, molecular biology, and more.
Chemistry students learn to apply basic knowledge, theories, and mathematical problem-solving approaches that aid modern discoveries in medicine, pharmacology, and toxicology.
The minor in chemistry gives students a solid foundation in general and organic chemistry with the opportunity to explore advanced chemistry courses that provide in-depth instruction on complex chemical concepts and hands-on laboratory experience. This minor can be a valuable addition to computer science, engineering, mathematics, and physics majors.
APU’s premedical/predental track prepares students with the science and other prerequisite coursework necessary for success in medical and dental programs.
