Students in this major will study biomedical science through the exciting Project-Lead-the-Way (PLTW) curriculum that will provide students hand on projects, labs, and experiences. Topics will include bio-informatics, human medicine, and an in depth study of the human body. In addition, students will complete advanced math and science courses. Students who complete this major will have been exposed to a diverse curriculum that will better equip them to choose and be successful in a major at the college/university level. Students will also have the strong math and science foundation needed to be prepared for a college/university program in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics) related fields.

NOTE: Students will take the four required PLTW courses. They will then take a combination of math and sciences as determined by course availability to complete the remaining 480 hours for 2-year students, or 960 hours for 3-year students.
