B.S. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Almost all areas of biological sciences are impacted by studies at the chemical and molecular level. Students who wish to begin in-depth study of the molecular basis in any of a variety of fields, including development, gene expression, immunology, pathogenesis, disease, virology, and evolution, can do so through this major.
|Full-time Duration:||4 years|
|Starting in:||Fall quarter admission|
|Tuition Fee:||$ 45,540|
|Location:||Irvine, CA, United States|
Graduates will be prepared to pursue graduate degrees that emphasize basic scientific research, including Ph.D. and M.S. programs. In addition, and particularly with the explosive growth in biotechnology and its significant influence in everyday life, graduates could use their backgrounds very effectively to pursue careers in business, education, law, and public affairs.
“Biochemistry and molecular biology are fundamental tools in our search for a deeper understanding of the mechanistic principles that govern nature. In the Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry we use these tools in fields as diverse as immunology, parasitology, and virology; vascular biology, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease; bacterial metabolism, drug discovery and structural biology.
We love what we do and are lucky to do it. Welcome to MB&B – Where Discovery Begins!”
