  • The goal of biochemistry and molecular biology is to understand how simple, inanimate molecular interactions support life
  • Students begin their studies with a broad set of courses in the natural sciences. In the second year, biochemistry is introduced, leading to third-year explorations of DNA, the blueprint of life, proteins, the machines that make the bodies work, and a wide range of other molecular topics
  • The BCMB major also includes extensive training in practical laboratory skills, such as DNA fingerprinting, which are essential for careers in the natural sciences, criminal forensics, laboratory technician programs, and a variety of industries
  • One of the outstanding features of the BCMB program is the opportunity to work in research labs from the first day on campus.
  • The program also helps students to achieve their career goals by encouraging minors in other disciplines
