Biophysics is the application of the principles and tools of physics to the study of biological systems. Biophysicists contribute to the understanding of a wide range of interdisciplinary scientific subfields including biotechnology, quantitative molecular and cellular biology, medical physics, neuroscience and biomechanics. The goal of the Physics B.S. with Biophysics specialization is to prepare graduates to be competitive in applications for entry into graduate degree programs in biophysics, physics, and related fields; jobs in government research labs; and private sector employment in areas such as biotechnology. Depending on math preparation, students should be able to complete the Bachelor of Science degree, with Biophysics specialization, in four years at CWU.
