I looked at other schools with communication programs like Syracuse and Notre Dame, but after I visited Curry on Accepted Student Day, saw the radio station and met the folks who worked there, it was a no-brainer.

* These courses are offered every other year and students should consider this when scheduling.
** Individual Biology Majors should seek advice from a Biology faculty member for additional recommendations in the math area.

Note: Any two science laboratory courses from different science areas may be used in combination to fulfill the CLAC I science requirement.

As a Biology major, students will fulfill all the coursework requirements for application to medical, dental, and veterinary schools. Interested students should consult with the pre-medical advisor. The general requirements, as determined by the Association of American Medical Colleges, are: one year of biology, two years of chemistry through organic chemistry, one year of physics, one year of English, and one year of math (usually through Calculus). Students will also be expected to have taken the MCAT exam.

 
Pre-Health Profession Studies

Students wishing to pursue a career as a physician, dentist, veterinarian, physician assistant, or other medical careers requiring an advanced degree should consider Curry's Pre-Health Profession Studies Program (This encompasses what are popularly called pre-med programs, pre-dental programs, etc).

Meet Nick Messier '13 - Biopharmaceutical Technologist

Nick Messier '13 always had a clear idea of the career path he would take, and just months after graduating from Curry College, the dual biology/criminal justice major was already employed as a Biopharmaceutical Technologist at Charles River Laboratories in Wilmington, Mass.
