This interdepartmental major is designed to prepare students for
graduate school or a technical career in biochemistry/molecular biology.
It is also a suitable preparation for most of the schools in the health
professions. The curriculum is drawn from the Departments of
Biology and Chemistry, with emphasis on cellular
biology, genetics, and biochemistry, and laboratory techniques in these
Major: A minimum of 13 course credits (12 courses if CHE 161 is taken) in Biology and Chemistry,
which include these 12 required courses: BIO 141 and
142 (Foundations: Cellular Biology, and Foundations: Organismal Biology), BIO 205 (Cell and
Molecular Biology), BIO 315 (Genetics); CHE
121 and 122 (Chemical Principles I and II) or
161 (Accelerated General Chemistry), CHE 202 (Analytical
Chemistry), CHE 225, 326, and 327
(Organic Chemistry I, II, and Laboratory), CHE 334
(Biochemistry); BMB 485 (Problems); and one course selected
from BIO 305 (Advanced Topics in Molecular Biology), BIO
313 (Developmental Biology), BIO 326
(Microbiology), BIO 327 (Immunology), BIO 328
(Neurobiology), or CHE 323 (Physical Chemistry I).
Recommended courses are MAT 141 and 142 (Calculus I and II);
PHY 101-102 (Introductory Physics I and II) or
PHY 111-112 (General Physics I and II) and PHY 114 (Laboratory Physics).
