RICHARD L. CONOLLY COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS & SCIENCES

B.S. in Biology - Molecular Biology


Students majoring in Biology can opt to specialize in Molecular Biology. The Molecular Biology program gives students a basic knowledge of biochemical principles and practical training in cell and molecular biological laboratory techniques. Emphasis is given to developing experimental skills used in biological research, including current recombinant DNA technologies. In their senior year students undertake 11 credits of independent research and submit a written thesis for graduation.
