Undergraduate Studies in PATHOBIOLOGY

Students majoring in PATHOBIOLOGY focus on human and animal diseases and their relationship to people and the environment (ONE HEALTH).

The curriculum is designed for students preparing to enter medical, dental, physician assistant, veterinary, or graduate schools, and to pursue careers in global health, medical biotechnology, biomedical sciences, para-veterinary medicine, and many diverse laboratory and research positions in health fields.

PATHOBIOLOGY is a New England Regional Student Program. Permanent residents of Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Vermont enrolled in the PATHOBIOLOGY major pay reduced out-of-state tuition!

  • Estimated savings of $13,650 (35.6% off) per year = $54,600 over 4 years!
