About Us

The Molecular Biosciences Program at Bellevue College started in the fall 0f 2016 with two new degrees, the Molecular Sciences Technician AAS-T and the Molecular Biosciences BAS. Since that time, we’ve had nearly 50 graduates and our enrollment continues to grow. Our degrees are unique in that they focus on teaching applicable skills as well as providing strong academic foundations. Students can expect to develop their skills in laboratory processes and equipment usage, data collection and analysis, project management and general business for laboratory settings, and scientific communication. As we look to the future we see opportunities for our graduates to work in fields such as vaccine research, food science, forensics, molecular biology, biochemistry and more. Students will be able to explore these interests and more in our newly remodeled laboratory scheduled to open sometime in 2021. We look forward to welcoming you to our programs!
