Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB) Concentration
The Concentration in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is for biology, chemistry, or other science or engineering majors who wish to emphasize molecular, biochemical, and/or biotechnology issues. CBMB offers students undergraduate research opportunities in these areas of concentration. This option does not change credit hours needed for BS/BA in biology or the BS/BA chemistry degrees. However, it specifies that 14 credit hours of the following courses be taken as part of the student’s major or elective options:
Required Courses (you must take these for the BMB concentration)
- BI 101 General Biology I
- BI 205 Genetics
- CH 322 Metabolic Biochemistry
- CH 323 Biochemistry Laboratory
Cell Elective (Choose one of these)
Molecular Elective (Choose one of these)
- CH 301 Physical Chemistry
Biochemistry Elective (Choose one of these)
- CH 321 Structural Biochemistry
Capstone Research Experience: Two semesters (4 credits minimum) of research experience in an approved area of chemistry or biology which may include thesis research, independent research, summer research, or a combination thereof.
GPA: Cadets must maintain a minimum of a 2.0 GPA in BMB courses.
Cadets interested in the BMB Concentration should contact Major Emily Lilly.
