The Masters of Science (MS) degree in Molecular and Cell Biology (MCB) provides students with advanced preparation and hands-on lab experience to enter professional and graduate schools or to pursue full-time work in research and pharmaceutical laboratories.

Rapid advances in the fields of molecular and cell biology have led to the emergence of a new and exciting field of biotechnology. These advances are used in the detection and treatment of human disease and underlie modern pharmaceutical and academic research laboratories.

The Master of Science in Molecular and Cell Biology (MCB) program is available to both part-time and full-time students. Within the department of Biological Sciences, the mission of the MCB graduate program is to prepare students for employment in research fields available in the pharmaceutical industry, universities and hospitals as well as to provide an excellent foundation for students intending to pursue studies in professional health care fields and doctoral programs. See below for representative job positions from recent MCB students. Please consult the sections below for more information on the program or contact the program director.
