Biochemistry & Molecular Biology

The Bachelor of Science program in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is an interdisciplinary program offered jointly by the departments of Biology and Physical Sciences.

Students in the Biochemistry & Molecular Biology program acquire practical experience with state-of-the-art biochemical analysis and recombinant DNA technology as they study structures and chemical processes of living cells.

A capstone research project frequently results in professional presentations at scientific meetings and possible publication. The major will enable students for possible futures in the health professions, research in academics, the government, or private industry, education, or non-science related fields including law.

At the completion of the degree students should be able to:

  • Provide an explanation of the importance of the scientific method for understanding natural phenomena

  • Demonstrate understanding of biology at the level of molecules, cells, systems, organisms, and ecosystems

  • Explain key concepts in molecular biology and biochemistry

  • Demonstrate scientific quantitative skills, such as the ability to evaluate experimental design, read graphs, and understand and use information from scientific papers

  • Effectively communicate scientific data and ideas in both written and oral formats
