The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology offers a program leading to the Master of Science degree. The objective of this program is to provide students with a thorough background in modern biochemistry and molecular biology. This theoretical background provides the fundamental knowledge necessary for an understanding of the life sciences at the molecular level.
The Master’s program provides advanced training in the principles of biochemistry and molecular biology. Research opportunities are available (Plan B). Recent graduates from the Master’s program have found technical positions in academic and pharmaceutical company labs, pursued careers in teaching, science writing and editing, and as scientific consultants in business settings, or have gone on to advanced studies for the Ph.D. or M.D. degrees.
