If you are familiar with the pre-med students that enroll in Brandeis, then you are aware of the rigorous courses and structure that is set out for them. Nearly every semester has one or two courses dedicated to completing a Major requirement in Life Sciences in order to graduate on time.
As a part of the Brandeis community, I am extremely proud of the Medical School Statistics that we are able to provide on our pamphlets every year, and these intensive Life Science Programs are what provide for these statistics. If you find yourself in that group of people that consider Gerstenzang, or the G-Zang, as your second home then you understand that the structure that is provided for on the Biology Website is needed in order to receive the best possible grades possible for this degree.
If you are considering going abroad, then this can also put a stress on the full-proof plan. And if you are considering an additional major or minor, which many Brandeis students do choose, then the burden is going to only get more burdensome. To relieve some stress and some structure-overload, the Brandeis Summer Program offers many courses that go towards your science major.
General Chemistry and its Laboratory supplement are both available. Unfortunately, Biology Lab is not available any given summer because the experiments require more time than is provided for within a summer module, or even the extended program. Either way, there are a handful of courses that will stimulate your learning experience as well as facilitate any other interests that you might have outside of the sciences.
