Choosing a Great Biological & Biomedical Sciences School for Your Bachelor's Degree

Best Biological & Biomedical Sciences Bachelor's Degree Schools The biological and biomedical sciences bachelor's degree program you select can have a big impact on your future. This section explores some of the factors we include in our ranking and how much they vary depending on the school you select. Below we explain some of the most important factors to consider before making your choice:

Overall Quality Is a Must

A school that excels in educating for a particular major and degree level must be a great school overall as well. To make it into this list a school must rank well in our overall Best Colleges ranking. This ranking considered factors such as graduation rates, overall graduate earnings and other educational resources to identify great colleges and universities.

Over 80% of the schools in this list are in the top 4% of our overall quality ranking while the lowest ranked school on the list is still in the top 11%.

Average Early-Career Salaries

Average early-career salary of those graduating with their bachelor's degree is one indicator we use in our analysis to find the schools that offer the highest-quality education. After all, your bachelor's degree won't mean much if it doesn't help you find a job that will help you earn a living.

Other Factors We Consider

In addition to the above, you should consider some of the following factors:

  • Major Focus - How many resources a school devotes to biological and biomedical sciences students as compared to other majors.
  • Major Demand - How many other biological and biomedical sciences students want to attend this school to pursue a bachelor's degree.
  • Educational Resources - The amount of money and other resources allocated to students while they are pursuing their degree. These resources include such things as number of students per instructor and education expenditures per student.
  • Student Debt - How easy is it for biological and biomedical sciences to pay back their student loans after receiving their bachelor's degree.
  • Accreditation - Whether a school is regionally accredited and/or accredited by a recognized biological and biomedical sciences related body.

Our complete ranking methodology documents in more detail how we consider these factors to identify the best schools for biological and biomedical sciences students working on their bachelor's degree.

One Size Does Not Fit All

The biological and biomedical sciences school you choose to invest your time and money in matters. To help you make the decision that is right for you, we've developed a number of major-specific rankings, including this list of the Best Biological & Biomedical Sciences Bachelor's Degree Schools.

To further help you make the college decision, we've developed a unique tool called College Combat that allows you to compare schools based on the factors that matter the most to you. Go ahead and give it a try, or bookmark the link so you can check it out later.
