Biomolecular Science (BS)

Program Descriptions

Scientists working at the interface between biology and chemistry create big changes while working on the cellular and molecular level. Genetically modified crops allow quickly growing populations to be fed, while novel therapies, such as artificial organs, extend life. Biomolecular scientists also address ecological issues — such as producing cheap energy from renewable sources (like producing oil from algae), while others clean the environment through bioremediation. A B.S. in Biomolecular Science is also a suitable starting point for careers in medicine. Our program was developed in cooperation with deans from major medical schools, and graduates have gone on to Harvard Dental School, Mount Sinai Medical School, and NYU Medical School, among other medical programs.

Our B.S. program in Biomolecular Science lets you join in their efforts to improve the world. The first 2 years of the program focus on core courses so you have a solid foundation in the fundamentals of the science — math, physics, chemistry, and biology. From there, you can concentrate your studies in biomedical science, biotechnology, or chemistry.
