Students from all over the world come to UNMC

Master of Science in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology 

The Master of Science in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is a one-to-two year program within the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. The curriculum provides an opportunity for individuals desiring careers in health sciences, industry, education or research to prepare themselves for either professional studies or other positions.

Prospective students are individuals requiring mastery of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology beyond the baccalaureate level.  This would include students whose long-term goal is acquisition of a PhD but who need additional course work and experience to be successful in that goal, students wishing to attend professional school, students planning a career in industry and/or students desiring to teach at the level of community college.

There are two tracks available: a thesis track and a non-thesis track. 

The non-thesis track is designed to enable the motivated student to complete the program within eleven months.
