This major might be considered by students who are interested in finding technical positions in academia or industry after graduation, for those planning to pursue a graduate program in molecular biology, cell biology or microbiology, or for students interested in going to medical school. Lab courses are newly redesigned to be more discovery-based, teaching the processes of science. Student participation is emphasized in hypothesis formulation, experimental design, data collection, data analysis, and the composition of papers in a format conventional to science. Students who undertake the Molecular Biology collateral will have opportunities to apply the knowledge they acquire in the classroom and laboratory to the type of complex challenges they will face after they leave Coe.
Strongly recommended: PHY-115 Basic Physics I PHY-135 Basic Physics II -OR- PHY-215 General Physics I PHY-225 General Physics II
Because of significantly overlapping course requirements in the Molecular Biology and Biochemistry collateral majors, only one of the two majors can be elected by a student.
