Biology with Molecular Biology Emphasis (BS)

The recent rapid advances in the areas of genetics, molecular biology and related biotechnologies have created a strong demand for college graduates with specialized training in these areas. Hands-on experience in the use of the latest techniques is particularly important to this training.

The BS in Biology with Molecular Biology emphasis program is designed for students seeking a rigorous, laboratory-intensive curriculum to prepare them for health-related professions, research jobs, or graduate programs in a number of areas related to molecular biology. The curriculum includes the same foundational lecture and laboratory courses in the areas of cell biology, genetics, and ecology taken by general Biology majors. Additional coursework focuses specifically on topics related to molecular biology.
