WHY MAJOR IN APPLIED MOLECULAR BIOLOGY AND BIOTECHNOLOGY?
Biotechnology uses knowledge obtained about organisms at the molecular level to inform diagnostic and therapeutic decisions, create new treatments using stem- and gene-therapies, produce novel biopharmaceuticals and help address global problems such as world hunger through genetically modified plants.
The Program in Applied Molecular Biology & Biotechnology (BAMBB) will prepare students to work in a wide variety of biotechnology-related settings. With a locked-step curriculum, the program will emphasize hands-on training and practical experience, while providing a solid foundation in the basic subjects from which biotechnology evolved. Faculty from academia and industry will give students a broad perspective of biotechnology’s applications and possibilities. Integrated into the curriculum are required practical internships, where students will gain additional experience in real world laboratory settings.
UNIQUENESS OF OUR PROGRAM
In today’s competitive employment market, students are looking for a degree that can provide a high likelihood of return on their investment. The Applied Molecular Biology and Biotechnology major is significantly different from other basic science programs in that it will provide a foundation in the basic biotechnology laboratory skills set as well as a solid basic science background. With a hands-on, competency based curriculum, students completing the BAMBB major will be able to “hit-the-ground-running” as entry-level scientists, making this an attractive option as a major.
With a combination of academic preparation and work experience, BAMBB graduates are eligible to sit for the certification examination in molecular biology offered by the Board of Certification of the American Society for Clinical Pathology, should they so desire.
