College of Biological Sciences
- Bachelor of Science
Are you fascinated by how the cell operates in living organisms? Are you curious how the adult cell functions? Cell biology integrates principles from many disciplines, including chemistry, physics, genetics, biochemistry and physiology, for a more complete understanding of cell function. This major will open up doors to scientific opportunities for cellular and molecular exploration.
You will begin with foundation courses similar to those of other majors in the biological sciences, including basic natural science and mathematics concepts. At the upper division level, you will study more advanced topics in organic and physical chemistry and developmental, molecular and cell biology. The strong research focus of the major gives you the chance to become familiar with modern experimental biology, and you will be encouraged to work with faculty on independent research products to enhance your classroom studies.
