This combined degree program officially begins in Fall 2020
Students in this program complete both the BS in Biology and the MS in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB) in 5 years. The goal is to provide students with knowledge and skills required for the workforce in biochemistry and molecular biology, while also providing them with a broad background in biology in general via the undergraduate degree portion of the joint program.
Students can apply for acceptance into the dual degree program when they are in the Junior year of their BS in Biology. In their Senior year, students in this program take 12 graduate BMB credits (3-4 courses) in place of 4 BIO elective courses (12-16 credits). In their 5th year, students take the remaining BMB courses they have not already completed.
