Welcome to the Molecular Biosciences department!

Successful graduates of the Bachelor of Applied Science in Molecular Biosciences should possess the skills necessary for careers in a variety of disciplines such as molecular biology, medicine, forensics, biochemistry, pharmacology, neuroscience, food chemistry, and environmental science.

Program Highlights

This applied degree differs significantly from the traditional undergraduate science degree in several ways, including:

  • Focus on developing a solid scientific background that becomes the foundations for applied laboratory skills.
  • Extensive laboratory work with state-of-the-art technologies to foster the development of independent laboratory skills.
  • Familiarity with reading, understanding, and discussing research papers in molecular biosciences through participation in molecular biosciences seminars.
  • Exposure to project management and general business skills for laboratory settings.
  • Preparation for immediate employment through a capstone project in a laboratory setting.
