This interdisciplinary major, jointly offered by the Departments of Biology and Chemistry, provides a strong foundation in biological chemistry and molecular biology, and related topics at the interface of these two disciplines. The major is designed to build conceptual understanding and practical and critical thinking skills to address current biological, biochemical, and biomedical challenges. A required research experience, culminating in a senior project, will give students strong experimental skills and provide insight into the experimental approaches and results that demonstrate the function of biological molecules.
Students will select a major concentration either in biochemistry or in molecular biology, which differ only in elective courses. The requirements for completion of the major are those in effect at the time of the declaration, as requirements may change slightly during the student’s time at Wake Forest University.
There are 49 credits required for this major fulfilled by Biology, Chemistry, and BMB courses: Students will need to take at least two courses from these requirements each semester for adequate progress in the major. The major requirements are:
