Master of Science - Cell & Molecular Biology
Cell and molecular biology is an interdisciplinary
program offered by the CABNR, and the School of Medicine.
Study programs lead to the master of science or doctor of philosophy degree. Additionally,
medical students may earn a M.D./Ph.D. degree through the program.
The highly interactive program offers a wide range of study options dealing with
contemporary biophysics, cancer, cell biology, chemical biology, immunology, insect
biochemistry, microbiology, pharmacology and plant biology. Students who seek admission
to the program should have completed the following course requirements: 8 credits
of both organic chemistry and biology, 6 credits of physics and 4 credits of calculus.
If a student is admitted with a deficiency in these courses, the required courses
must be completed during the first year of graduate study.
Candidates for the master of science degree must satisfy all general requirements
of the Graduate School and complete a curriculum
consisting of 30 credits, which include the following: 14 credits of core curriculum,
6 credits of research and thesis, and 10 credits of approved electives. Any substitutions
of the core curriculum requirements must be approved by the director of the
Cell and Molecular Biology program.
