Offered by the Department of Biology
Professors Kirby, Maris (chairperson)
Associate Professors: Clifford, Hensley, Kagle, Stein

The Cell and Molecular Biology concentration is designed to educate students in contemporary Biology emphasizing molecular interactions, cell development and functions. This concentration is the primary degree for medical school preparation. This program has a strong emphasis on chemistry. Students learn to manipulate and use a variety of cell and molecular techniques important in present day research. Students selecting this concentration are qualified to enter the job market in Biotechnology, Pharmaceuticals, Medicine, and the Molecular Biology of the environment.  The student learning outcomes for the Cell and Molecular Biology Concentration are the same as for the overall program, but with special emphasis on the knowledge of Biology pertaining to cellular structure and function and the molecular aspects of Biology.

Concentration Outcomes

In addition to the core Student Learning Outcomes for the Biology program, students in the Cell and Molecular Concentration are expected to be able to apply:

  1. Mastery of Student Learning Outcomes 1.3, 1.6 and 1.7.
  2. Successful application of laboratory techniques required for Molecular Biology experimentation, including polymaerase chain reaction, nucleic acid purification, handling of bacterial cultures.
