Welcome to the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Major Website

This interdisciplinary major, jointly offered by the Departments of Biology and Chemistry, provides a strong foundation in biological chemistry and molecular biology, and related topics at the interface of these two disciplines. The major is designed to build conceptual understanding and practical and critical thinking skills to address current biological, biochemical, and biomedical challenges. A required research experience, culminating in a senior project, will give students strong experimental skills and provide insight into the experimental approaches and results that demonstrate the function of biological molecules.

“Multiple courses in this major taught me how to think critically about my own and others research. I learned how to dissect research papers and make critical judgements about the quality of my work and others.” Callie Ollish
