Molecular Biosciences

Students who earn an undergraduate molecular biosciences certificate will understand the foundations of three fields of study: genetics, microbiology, and biochemistry, and will know how to use these disciplines to make informed decisions about current societal issues.

Certificate recipients will be prepared to work in both science and non-science careers, qualified for employment opportunities with non-profit organizations and government agencies involved in science making decisions, and be top prospects for private sector businesses that require employees with interdisciplinary scientific training.
