Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB) Concentration
The Concentration in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is for biology, chemistry, or other science or engineering majors who wish to emphasize molecular, biochemical, and/or biotechnology issues. CBMB offers students undergraduate research opportunities in these areas of concentration. This option does not change credit hours needed for BS/BA in biology or the BS/BA chemistry degrees. However, it specifies that 14 credit hours of the following courses be taken as part of the student’s major or elective options:
- BI 101 General Biology I with lab (4 credits)
- BI 205 Genetics with lab (4 credits)
- BI 302 Cell Biology with lab (4 credits)
- CH 321 Structural Biochemistry (3 credits)
- CH 322 Molecular Biochemistry (3 credits)
- CH-323 Biochemistry Laboratory (1.5 credits)
Advanced concentration elective
- BI-430 Molecular Biology (3 credits) OR
- CH-301 Physical Chemistry (3 credits)
Capstone Research Experience: Two semesters (4 credits minimum) of research experience in an approved area of chemistry or biology which may include thesis research, independent research, summer research, or a combination thereof.
GPA: Cadets must maintain a minimum of a 2.0 GPA in BMB courses.
Cadets interested in the BMB Concentration should contact Major Emily Lilly.
