Why Study Medical, Cellular, and Molecular Biology

The potential student is interested in the study of life and how the molecular and cellular levels impact the functionality of the overall organism.  This degree is great for students who want to pursue a professional health degree such as medical, dental, or pharmacy school, those wanting to go to graduate school, and students interested in biomedical research.

The Department of Biology provides an immersive environment that helps students develop the skillsets needed to be successful as a biologist.  With the Medical, Cellular, and Molecular Biology concentration, students can pursue training in various aspects of physiology, microbiology, molecular and cellular biology, and genetics that will prepare them for future careers in biomedical research, medicine, and graduate school. 

The Department of Biology offers close collaboration between students and faculty with immersive experiences that allow for students to hone their skillsets.  The Biology faculty have a vested interest in student success and are excited to include students in experiential learning opportunities including research experiences and study abroad.

The Biology faculty have expertise in various areas of biology and include trained cell biologists, microbiologists, molecular biologists, neuroscientists, and physiologists, as well as expertise biomedical science, pharmacology, and genetics. 

What Will I Learn

Students earning a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a concentration in Medical, Cellular and Molecular Biology will demonstrate a command of the general principles of biology in the areas of cell and molecular biology, genetics, microbiology and physiology.
