Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology

While biologists focus on large structures within organisms and chemists focus on molecules and reactions, biochemists and molecular biologists focus on the chemical reactions and structures that make organisms ‘tick’ at the molecular level. This major is designed with courses that will either prepare you for or directly cover topics that are at the convergence of chemistry and biology. This major is rigorous and comprehensive, preparing you for the same careers as biology and chemistry majors.

Why CBU?

At CBU, you will learn under professors who are dedicated to their students. Every major class and lab is taught by a full-time faculty member. We have state-of-the-art equipment and facilities that are dedicated for use by our students in both classes and research.

Career Opportunities

  1. Research scientists in hospital and industrial labs and in government positions including food and drug inspectors.
  2. Biotechnology firms - developing the pharmaceuticals and health care products of tomorrow.
  3. Educators in secondary, college and non-classroom settings.
  4. Preparation for medical school and other medical-related professional schools.
  5. Preparation for a wide variety of graduate school programs.

  • Student Learning Outcomes
    1. Upon completion of the B.S. degree in biochemistry and molecular biology, students will demonstrate competency in biochemistry and molecular biology at levels comparable to national standards for these disciplines.
    2. Students will be able to critically analyze and discuss scientific journal articles.
    3. Students will be able to critically analyze and discuss selected contemporary and/or controversial issues in biochemistry, molecular biology and related disciplines, enabling them to be informed citizens and participants in the public debate and discourse involving these issues.
    4. Students will demonstrate proficiency in accurately conveying scientific data both orally and in writing.
    5. Upon completion of each year of chemistry coursework (general, organic, and biochemistry), students will attain knowledge comparable to national standards in these areas of chemistry. 
    6. Students will apply their knowledge of biology and chemistry through an in-depth research project related to biochemistry or molecular biology.
    7. Students will be able to apply appropriate technology (including molecular modeling and bioinformatics) and mathematical tools to their studies of biochemical and molecular biology systems.
    8. Students will be able to apply instrumental and other laboratory techniques to laboratory-based problems.
    9. Students will understand the concepts of safe laboratory practices and how to apply them.
    10. Students should be able to work in a group to solve scientific problems, be effective leaders as well as effective team members, and interact productively with a diverse group of peers.
