Mathematical biology (biomathematics) is a highly interdisciplinary program at the intersection of mathematics, biology and computer science. The biomathematics major is offered through the mathematics department. Primarily during the freshman and sophomore years, biomathematics majors complete core courses, then specialize during the junior and senior years. Specialization is based on interest in computer science, mathematics or biology while retaining interdisciplinary training.

The interdisciplinary nature of the biomathematics major enables undergraduates who are interested in combining mathematics, computer science and biology to be more competitive for graduate programs and careers in bioinformatics, biostatistics, biomedical engineering, biomathematics or medicine.
