Program Overview

The Master of Science in Biomolecular Science is a two-year, 36 credit-hour graduate program that provides education and training for careers in pharmaceutical, biotechnology, biomedical, and chemical industries or for entry into doctoral research or professional degree programs. Students develop transferable skills of data analysis, problem solving, critical evaluation of scientific literature, oral and written communication, experimental methods, and interdisciplinary knowledge of the biological systems and responses to bioactive compounds at a physiological, cellular, and molecular level. With a requirement to complete a mentored research project, the program prepares students to investigate a wide range of biomedical-related topics including study of the mechanism of disease and development of new drugs. Students will choose as a focus area of their studies either the cell and molecular biology concentration or the medicinal chemistry concentration.
