The Biochemistry Cellular and Molecular Biology (BCMB) program recognizes the importance of the interdisciplinary nature of modern biochemistry, cellular and molecular biology, chemistry, botany and biology.
BCMB is a popular choice of major for pre-med students because it covers most requirements for the Medical College Admissions Test.
BCMB majors take courses and attend seminars in the chemistry and biological science departments, and gain experience in the rapidly evolving field of genetic engineering.
All students become proficient in the use of computer technology to model chemical systems and control laboratory instruments.
