Finding the Best Biological & Biomedical Sciences Bachelor's Degree School for You

In 2018-2019, 162,961 biological and biomedical sciences students received their degrees and certificates, making the major the #9 most popular in the country.

There are lots of options to pick from today when trying to decide which program is right for you. You're no longer limited to schools in your local area, either, since online programs are becoming more prevalent. Or you may find the programs at a trade school to be a better alternative for you.

To assist you in seeing some of the education options that are available to you, Course Advisor has created its Best Value Biological & Biomedical Sciences Bachelor's Degree Schools ranking. This report analyzed 463 schools in the United States to see which ones offered the best value bachelor's degree programs for biological and biomedical sciences students. The goal was to highlight schools with more affordable prices than others offering similar quality experiences.

When determining this ranking, we place a high emphasis on the school's quality as well as its sticker price. Even though a college may be affordable, it may not offer value. More specifically, we discount our quality score by the published tuition and fees charged by a school. This gives the cost per unit of quality for each college. The value is determined by how much quality your dollar buys.

Our calculations use out-of-state tuition and fees in our nationwide and regional rankings. Average in-state tuition and fees are used for our statewide rankings.
