Offered exclusively as a second major or as a minor, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology gives you an opportunity to augment your education in this technically-important field. If your first major is in chemistry or chemical engineering, you’ll find considerable overlap with your biochemistry and molecular biology courses. Students from other disciplines are also encouraged to participate, but will have to take more courses to complete the major.
To earn this second major, you’ll need 81 credit hours, including courses in organic chemistry, biochemistry, physical chemistry, and genetic engineering. Elective courses include subjects such as virology, cancer biology, and genomics and proteomics. For more details, see the Course Catalog.
