Degree Requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies with a faculty-initiated concentration in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

The Biochemistry and Molecular Biology concentration (BCAMB) is an Interdisciplinary Studies major  (Biology and Chemistry) designed for students interested in these rapidly developing fields of science. Students with training in these fields can pursue careers as researchers in academic or industrial settings or they can pursue further study in graduate or professional schools. Students must complete 40 graduation credits before application to the program, generally in the spring of the sophomore year.

Admission: Students must obtain the approval of the Program Director before officially declaring this Interdisciplinary Studies major.

General Program B.S.: Combined major and minor sequence consisting of a minimum of 65 credits.
