In the School of Sciences, we offer students small class sizes, especially at 300- to 400-level, and research opportunities with faculty. Our programs prepare students for the path they want to take, whether it's a career right after college or entrance into a graduate or a professional school. For example, three IU Kokomo graduates started in medical school in 2016 and one started at the IU School of Dentistry. Another graduate began a Ph.D. program in biochemistry in 2016. Our graduates also work for a variety of businesses in scientific fields and in information systems.
Are you looking for a great pre-med program that offers small class sizes and the opportunity to interact directly with faculty and other students? At IU Kokomo, several programs in our School will prepare you for the medical training path you want to take, whether it’s a career right after college or entrance into a professional school. Graduates of our biology/biochemistry/chemistry degrees can enter professional schools such as medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, chiropractic, physical therapy, occupational therapy, or they can continue to graduate programs in biology, chemistry, informatics, and mathematics.
The Bachelor of Arts in biological and physical sciences degree gives you the vehicle for pursuing admission in the master of occupational therapy or doctor of physical therapy programs, which both require a bachelor’s degree.
Your education at IU Kokomo will be more than just completing coursework, giving you any number of opportunities to conduct independent undergraduate research with faculty either through the Undergraduate Research Summer Institute or by funding from grants held by faculty. You will also be able to have hands-on experience with sophisticated research equipment, such as gas chromatography/mass spectroscopy, high pressure liquid chromatography, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and scanning electron microscopy, to name a few.
