Biophysics anyone?

  1. Feb 3, 2010 #1
    Would it be possible to enter a master degree program in biophysics with a b.s. degree in physics, or do I need to have some kind of educational biology background?

    I'm my junior year in physics at UW, and was wondering what would be the transition from B.S. in physics into M.S in Biophysics and physiology?

    You should be well-prepared to make the transition. You will need some additional coursework in biochemistry and biology, but that's about it.
