    Course Summary

    Biomedical Science is an incredibly widespread field. As medicine and medical processes become ever more sophisticated and complex, more and more skilled biomedical science graduates are needed to work in field, or in those closely associated fields like Health Science, Kinesiology, Psychology and Chemistry. Incidentally, you can add any of these fields as a Minor when you select Biomedical Science as your Major.

    York University’s Biomedical Science program can be taken as a standard BSc, or you can add unique international content, such as an overseas internship or co-operative learning program, making it into a highly sought-after iBSc. The program’s faculty have several relevant research foci, such as developmental science, molecular genetics, endocrinology, immunology, microbiology and physiology.

    You can further specialise your degree by taking different optional modules, and co-operative opportunities are available within Canada or greater North America as well. That would be very  useful if you are planning a career in biomedical research or if you plan to attend medical school.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
