Requirements to Become an MBB Major
The Molecular Biology and Biochemistry (694) major is open to students beyond their first year who have received grades of C or better in courses taken toward the major or by special permission of the undergraduate director. Students should have completed or received Advanced Placement (AP) credit for General Biology (119:115/116/117), General Chemistry (160:161/162 or 163/164), Calculus (640:135 or 151) and at least one semester of Organic Chemistry (160:307 or 315). A grade of C or better in courses credited toward the major is required for graduation.
Procedure to Register for the MBB Major
MBB majors are usually SAS students and should sign up for the "694" major instead of 115. Biochemistry (115) majors follow the Biochemistry curriculum of the Department of the Biochemistry and Microbiology at the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences.
