Molecular Biology Requirements

All students within the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences must complete General Education Requirements. These courses provide breadth to your education beyond training in the Biological Sciences. All majors within the Department of Biological Sciences must also complete Corequisite Courses in Chemistry, Math, and Physics; these courses give you the scientific background to maximize your education within the Molecular Biology major.

There are two tracks within the Molecular Biology major: Biochemistry or Cell and Developmental Biology. The major progress trackers below are a comprehensive list of the courses for each track available to Molecular Biology majors to complete the B.S. degree. Review the BIOSC Courses webpage for available BIOSC electives. Make sure to visit our other Mol. Bio. webpages for scheduling tips and a sample schedule. Please see a Biological Sciences Advisor for any questions about planning your schedule.
