Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
The Master of Science (MS) in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology degree provides students with a solid grounding in modern applications of biochemistry and molecular biology.
Students with a bachelor of science (BS) in biology, chemistry, or biochemistry, preferably with experience in physical chemistry, physics and mathematics may enter the master’s degree program. It is preferred that potential candidates have had some research experience in their undergraduate degree.
Prospective students should submit the application by April 15 for study to commence the following fall. The application should include:
- Official transcripts
- Two letters of recommendation
Review of applications will begin early March and the admissions committee will continue to accept applications through July 30 if the class maximum has not been reached.
Learning That Inspires Intellect
The master's degree in biochemistry and molecular biology is structured to provide undergraduates in biology, chemistry or biochemistry with advanced knowledge of biochemistry and molecular biology. Students receive cutting edge instruction in areas of study, including proteomics, DNA technology, and cell-signaling, and are encouraged to apply this knowledge to an area of specialization during their thesis research.
