Our Major in Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology provides undergraduate students with cutting-edge information on the molecular processes involved in cell function and differentiation. The curriculum consists of several core and elective disciplines that are updated yearly to reflect advances in the field. Most of the upper division courses integrate recent scientific articles and enable students to experience how new information is scrutinized and validated by the scientific community.
The following series of classes is taken to prepare you for the upper division classes of your major:
