A modern, molecular foundation for your career

In the fall semester of 2018, we will offer a new interdisciplinary degree in Molecular Life Sciences (MLS) jointly with the Department of Biology.

Created with the pre-professional in mind, the MLS degree will prepare you for graduate work, whether you plan to pursue medical school, dental school, or a Ph.D. in the life sciences.

Two tracks to choose from

For the first two years, you’ll focus on a selection of interdisciplinary courses in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Math. In your junior year, you’ll select your preferred track: Molecular and Structural Biology or Cellular and Developmental Biology.

New advanced courses

As part of this new degree, we have designed several new 400-level Molecular Life Sciences courses that provide understanding of important cellular processes in a level of depth not currently offered elsewhere on campus. These courses are open to all eligible students, not just MLS majors.
