Cell/Molecular Biology Focus

Cell and molecular biologists study basic life processes, seeking to understand them at the molecular level. Students interested in graduate, medical or professional schools, or work in the pharmaceutical or biotechnology industries are encouraged to focus on course offerings in the Biology Major which will expose them to a variety of techniques and areas of study and also provide the opportunity for independent research.

Those interested in focusing on Cell and Molecular Biology would benefit from a minor in chemistry (taking CHEM 360 Introduction to Biochemistry as part of the minor).

Students should also consider enrolling in:

BIOL 318Immunology3.00
BIOL 355Microbiology4.00
BIOL 465Laboratory Techniques in Biochemistry and Cell/Molecular Biology1.00-2.00
