Biological Sciences – Concentration in Cell and Molecular Biology
Career Opportunities: Molecular Biology • Medicine • Microbiology • Dentistry • Biotechnology • Optometry • Immunology • Biomedical Research • Genetics • and more
Some of the greatest advances in biology today are happening at the molecular frontier. Molecular biology and biotechnology have opened doors for the development of new treatments for diseases and ways to increase crop production to provide food for the growing world population. The concentration in Cell and Molecular Biology prepares students for further study in graduate and professional programs in areas such as genetics, microbiology, immunology, and medicine.
Students interested in pursuing professional education in medicine, pharmacy, optometry, dentistry, or other health sciences are especially encouraged to consider this concentration which was designed to accommodate a broad range of entrance requirements for many of the region's professional programs. (For more information on these pre-professional curricula, please visit the Pre-Health Science Program).
