Biochemistry-Molecular Biology (BS)

Biochemistry and molecular biology encompass the understanding of life and processes at the cellular level. Applications range from medicine to agriculture to fitness. HBU faculty from Biology, Chemistry, Math and Physics departments teach and mentor in this major. Departmental honors are available in BCMB. The BCMB program is accredited by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
