The interdisciplinary major in biomathematics has a program for recognizing graduating biomathematics majors for outstanding performance. Under this program, such students, upon graduation, may be awarded honors in biomathematics.
Note that the requirements for Graduation with Honors in Biomathematics are distinct from other honors graduation programs such as the honors program of the School of Arts and Sciences. Students may qualify for one or more honors programs, in multiple departments.
Students who will meet the requirements for biomathematics graduation honors and wish to be considered for Graduation with Honors in Biomathematics should file the Intent to Complete Biomathematics Honors by February of their senior year, in order to ensure consideration for the program. The form is here .
To graduate with biomathematics honors, a biomathematics major must:
- have a cumulative grade-point average of 3.4 or better in the five mathematics courses at or above the 300 level taken to fulfill the biomathematics required and elective courses;
- have a cumulative grade-point average of 3.4 or better in the four courses taken to fulfill the biomathematics required upper-level science courses;
- have an overall cumulative grade-point average of 3.0;
- at least one of 01:640:336 and 01:640:338 must be completed with a grade of B+ or better;
