Career Changer Track Course Information

Students in the post-bac program will follow a defined schedule of courses. Cross-disciplinary labs ("x-labs") engage students in a unique interdisciplinary curriculum. These laboratories are equivalent to completing two semesters of General Chemistry labs, Biology labs, and Physics labs, thus meeting the requirements of professional schools.
