The degree is offered at a total of 1,440 colleges across the nation, and is the 3rd most widely offered degree. Given that biological and biomedical sciences is offered at 94% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America, you can be sure this is a critical degree and the skillsets acquired are likely to last for a long time.
It is also worth noting that approximately 1 in 2 colleges offering biological and biomedical sciences are public making it a pretty accessible field.
The southeast produces the most biological and biomedical sciences graduates, largely led by Florida International University, while it’s the Big Ten Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, California ranks highest, with particular help from University of California-Davis and University of California-Los Angeles.
All that being said, no individual school produces more biological and biomedical sciences graduates than Arizona Western College, which graduated 1631 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study biological and biomedical sciences). More students studied biological and biomedical sciences as a percentage of total students at Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico-Arecibo than any other college.
