BAS in Molecular Biosciences

Molecular Biosciences encompasses the study of molecules that build living cells and organisms and the complex network of chemical reactions and physical processes connecting them. This field provides the foundation needed to work in a variety of disciplines including pharmacology, medicine, biochemistry, molecular biology, neuroscience, forensics, and food chemistry.
Successful Molecular Biosciences graduates will have a thorough understanding of the scientific disciplines underpinning molecular biosciences, as well as extensive laboratory experience using state-of-the-art equipment. They will also bring understanding of the complex regulatory environment surrounding the biosciences as well as the business skills needed to manage a project and/or the purchasing and tracking for a lab or study.
