Academic Catalog

Professional Biomedical Sciences (B.S.)

The BS in Professional Biomedical Sciences is an undergraduate degree completion path for students who made initial progress in an undergraduate degree program but transitioned to a professional medical sciences program prior to completion of their undergraduate degree. This degree is only open to students previously enrolled as undergraduate students in a CLAS major at WSU who meet the established eligibility requirements.  Eligible students will be able to earn a bachelor’s degree after transferring credits from approximately a year of successfully completed professional school credits without having to return to an undergraduate program. 

  • A student must have completed a minimum of 90 credits towards an UG program prior to entry into a professional program.
    • Completion of university general education requirements and the CLAS language requirement within those 90 credits.
    • Options to meet the CLAS minor requirements would be possible with the student’s original intended major or a biology minor as most professional programs require a concentration of BIO courses prior to entry.
  • A student must complete a minimum of three college-level semesters at Wayne State.
  • A student must have completed a minimum of 30 credits in residence at WSU prior to entry into a professional program.
  • A student must complete a minimum of 12 credits at the 3000 level or higher.
  • A student must have made reasonable progress toward completion of a declared WSU major. Examples of reasonable progress include documented interaction with department major academic advisors and/or successful completion of required coursework toward the major.
  • A student’s cumulative and major GPA must be at a minimum of 2.0 at the time of departure from WSU.
  • A student will have successfully completed a minimum of the first year (more if additional credits to reach 120 are needed) of a professional medical-based program offered by a U.S. accredited institution.
