Biochemistry & Molecular Biology

The biochemistry and molecular biology (BMB) interdisciplinary major is designed in recognition of the intimacy of the subject matter, objectives, and methodology of biochemistry and a variety of related biological disciplines.

Application for admission to the major is by submission of a declaration of major form to the BMB Committee. Except in unusual cases, this application should be made no later than the end of the sophomore year. Before registering for thesis, BMB majors must pass junior qualifying examinations in both biology and chemistry.
