Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BS)—(Biology Focus)

Twice the Science, Twice the Experience

Biology and chemistry—the study of life is intricately linked with the investigation of chemical processes. Michigan Tech’s Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is an innovative collaboration between the two sciences. You’ll learn fundamental biology and chemistry concepts in a truly unique and integrative way, gaining a deeper understanding of living systems.

Whether you’re preparing for a career in health care, pharmaceuticals, product development, or research; or planning to pursue advanced studies in biology, biochemistry, or medicine; Michigan Tech’s quantitative, science-focused program will prepare you thoroughly for what comes next.

One-of-a-Kind Program

Michigan Tech’s biochemistry and molecular biology degree program is unique in that it is offered collaboratively through both the chemistry and biology departments. That means you’ll have the opportunity to specialize your program of study to your unique interests by choosing a concentration in either biological sciences or chemistry. You’ll also benefit from access to both departments—twice the research opportunities, twice the technology, and twice the faculty experts.

Career Pathways

Biochemistry and molecular biology majors are in demand. The program provides excellent, rigorous preparation for careers in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, product development, environmental consulting, quality assurance, research, and academia. Other graduates go on to pursue advanced education in biochemistry, medical school, professional health programs, and more.
