The undergraduate major in Molecular and Cell Biology encompasses the diversity of scientific interests of the department's faculty. There are five emphases to choose from: Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, Cell & Developmental Biology, Genetics, Genomics & Development, Immunology & Pathogenesis, and Neurobiology. Information about the emphases, including the lower-division and upper division requirements, can be found on the Major-At-Glance webpage.
Students majoring in any of these emphases have been highly successful in entering graduate or medical school and in other science- and health-related careers. For more information about what our students do with an MCB major, checkout our Career webpage.
Staff advisors are available year-round to help you plan for the upcoming semesters. For more information about how the advisors can help you succeed, please visit the Advising Services webpage.
