Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Molecular and Cell Biology: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
The major in Molecular and Cell Biology: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB) emphasis is dedicated to the mechanistic understanding, at the molecular level, of essential processes for the life of the cell using rigorous and reductionist approaches. Students will learn not only how the molecules of life work in the healthy cell and organism but also how disruption of their function leads to disease. This knowledge is essential for the design of pharmacological treatments that target these molecules to alter their activity.
The major emphasis has two tracks—Track 1: Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, and Track 2: Biological Chemistry. For specific information regarding the requirements for each track, please see the Major Requirements tab on this page.
