Biological Chemistry, B.S.


A major in biological chemistry must include the cell and molecular biology courses in list I below plus three elective courses from list V below. In addition, the major must include all the chemistry, physics, and mathematics courses listed in lists II, III, and IV below. An appropriate six-credit special project such as CELL 495, 496 or CHEM 401, 402, or honors thesis project (CELL or CHEM H499-H500), integrating the students biological and chemical studies, is also required (This satisfies the capstone requirement). Because of the interdisciplinary nature of the biological chemistry major, students in this program may not minor in chemistry, cell and molecular biology, or ecology and evolutionary biology.

I. Cell and Molecular Biology Required Courses
