The Master of Science in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (non-thesis track) is a one-year program providing an opportunity for individuals desiring careers in health sciences, industry, education or research to prepare themselves for either professional studies or positions demanding mastery of science beyond the baccalaureate level. Students will experience seminar and comprehensive exams that are tailored for their expected careers, as well as unique experiences in bench science with training in basic and advanced laboratory techniques used in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
Coursework (Non-Thesis Track)
Students pursuing the M.S. degree in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology must complete the following courses:
|BMB 840||SEMINAR WITH DISCUSSION||2|
|BMB 843||LABORATORY TRAINING IN BIOCHEMISTRY & MOLECULAR BIOLOGY: BASIC||3|
|BMB 844||LABORATORY TRAINING IN BIOCHEMISTRY & MOLECULAR BIOLOGY: ADVANCED||5-10|
|BMB 915||PROTEINS & NUCLEIC ACID||3|
|IPBS 801||FUNDAMENTALS OF BIOMOLECULES||3|
|IPBS 802||MOLECULAR CELL BIOLOGY||2|
|IPBS 803||FUNDAMENTALS OF RECEPTORS & CELL SIGNALING||2|
|Electives (6 credits)|
These elective credits may include up to 5 additional hours of BMB 844.
The number of other graduate-level courses required will vary with each student. Individual Programs of Study will be designed for each student by their Advisory Committee with the approval of the Biochemistry & Molecular Biology Graduate Committee. Students must achieve a grade of "B–" or better in each graduate-level course and maintain an overall 3.0 graduate GPA.
