Data science has opened new windows into understanding our world and the field of biology is part of that. You can be part of decoding the data of living organisms and revealing the patterns of biological systems. We’re training a new generation of computer scientists — visionary number crunchers — to tackle big unsolved questions. Our undergraduate program in Computational Biology — unique to CMU — will help you take on challenges in modern biology and medicine backed by the unparalleled computational education and quantitative rigor of the world-leading School of Computer Science.
High School Course Requirements
*Four years of mathematics should include at least algebra, geometry, trigonometry, analytic geometry, elementary functions (pre-calculus) and preferably calculus. Advanced mathematics courses are encouraged, especially a course in calculus.
