The biomedical science (BMS) major at UNH encompasses three options: medical laboratory sciences (MLS); medical microbiology (MM); medical and veterinary sciences (MVS). These options possess diverse curricula but are linked by their common interests in the disciplines of medical and veterinary sciences. Students are attracted to these options by a profound interest in human and animal physiology and diseases. Each of the options in the BMS degree is based on solid foundations in biology, chemistry, physics and math, along with advanced courses in laboratory-based disciplines, mechanisms of disease induction, and therapy, as well as courses dealing with structure and function of diseased and non-diseased states. This program is accredited by the National Accreditation Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS).
