The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology offers courses in metabolism, the molecular aspects of gene expression and cellular processes, and nutrition. Although the department does not have a formal baccalaureate degree program, these courses can serve as a concentration for those interested in building a background in biochemistry before pursuing a career in medicine or related biomedical sciences.
Honors ProgramUnder the biological sciences honors program, it is possible for students to complete an undergraduate honors thesis with a faculty member from the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Students interested in this area of study need background courses in biology, other life sciences, and chemistry.
