Prerequisite courses

Admission to graduate work in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology may be granted to a student with a B.S. or B.A. degree from a recognized college or university. The student should have a comprehensive background in chemistry, general physics, mathematics and general biology. 

We prefer students with one year of general chemistry, one year of organic chemistry, mathematics through integral calculus, and one year of biological sciences. A course in biochemistry is highly recommended but is not required, and courses in analytical chemistry, physical chemistry, genetics, and computer applications are helpful. An opportunity to correct course deficiencies is offered during the first year of graduate study.
