Conduct key experiments and

extensive data analysis as a QBIO student.

QBIO undergraduate students participate in real world biology experiments alongside core faculty as a part of their undergraduate curriculum. Data generated by the experiments is then analyzed by the students using computational technology to generate new insights and a deeper understanding of how biological systems function.

With the ever increasing importance of large scale data analysis in our society, students who graduate with a QBIO major from USC are exceptionally well positioned to enter a broad range of fields within the workplace, and are highly sought after applicants.

The QBIO major better prepares students for a broad array of careers.

"QBIO emphasizes hands-on research experience, so I was able to spend a lot of time working in a lab studying gene regulation in heart development. QBIO's curriculum set me apart as an applicant, and has continued to help me throughout the first year of my PhD program. I'm proud and grateful to be a QBIO graduate!"
