The Biochemistry and Molecular Biology degree from Wright State University will prepare students for further professional training in human and veterinary medicine, physical therapy, physician assistancy, dentistry, pharmacy and optometry.

Overview

The Bachelor of Science degree from the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB BS) will focus on preparing students for careers in fields including, but not limited to, drug manufacturing and design, agriculture, forensic science (crime lab science), academic/clinical/industrial research and development, science education, and scientific writing.

Program Learning Outcomes:

The main goal of the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology degree from Wright State University is to prepare students for careers in fields related to biochemistry and molecular biology and/or admission into graduate and professional degree programs. The BMB BS Program will follow the foundational and threshold concepts and skills accredited by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB). It is our intention that our major will serve as a personalized program for accelerated students who seek more individualized attention than would be possible at institutions with larger enrollments.

Beyond the content knowledge endorsed by ASBMB, our curriculum uses cutting edge science education pedagogies such as active learning, flipped classrooms and formative assessment to build skills in teamwork, critical thinking, scientific reasoning and oral/written communication. Additionally, within the curriculum there are many opportunities for students to be associated with hands-on, up-to-date research through independent studies, undergraduate research projects and authentic research laboratory experiences.
