Modern life sciences research embraces interdisciplinary approaches among such diverse fields as biology, chemistry, medicine and biotechnology. The Molecular Life Sciences degree is grounded in these classic science disciplines. This degree program provides a unique molecular and structural biology understanding of how proteins and nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) function, coupled with their roles in controlling cellular replication and development.
Our students initially build an exciting science foundation with a tailored two-year blend of courses in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Math. In your junior and senior years, you focus your courses in one of two different degree concentrations—Molecular and Structural Biology or Developmental and Cellular Biology.
