Bachelor of Science Programs

B.S. in Biochemistry, Molecular & Cellular Biology (BMCB)

This major focuses on the study of living organisms at the biochemical, molecular and cellular levels. The BMCB major integrates a popular, yet rigorous, academic curriculum with extensive hands-on experiences (laboratory courses, independent research investigations, field work) to develop your technical and laboratory skills. The BMCB faculty offer areas of specialization in cell signaling pathways, gene regulation, endocrinology, macromolecular interactions, cancer, and cell physiology.

B.S. in Biomedical Science (BMS)

Focuses on human and animal health, and the methods for diagnosing, analyzing, and treating disease:

  • Pre-clinical medicine
  • Molecular diagnostics
  • Drug screening and evaluation
  • Environmental health and epidemiology

B.S. in Genetics

Genetics is central to all aspects of the life sciences and is the branch of biology that deals with heredity, variation of genes among individuals in a population, and the expression and regulation of genes.  Knowledge of genetics is used in many other disciplines including biochemistry, medicine, agriculture, ecology, conservation, and forensics.

B.S. in Nutrition

What is nutrition? It’s the study of food, the nutrients found in food, and the body’s metabolism of these nutrients to maintain and promote health. Nutrition is an interdisciplinary science based on biochemistry and physiology, but can also be enriched with sociology, psychology, molecular biology, and genetics.
