B.S. in Cellular & Molecular Biology

You watching: Usf cell and molecular biology major


The Biology routine uses the student a comprehensive yet liberal education and learning in Cellular and Molecular Biology. With diverse interests in the biological scientific researches the faculty offer a wide variety of courses and also provide the background necessary for careers in many type of locations of biological scientific research such as medication, molecular biology, biomodern technology, genetics, and also medical innovation. Students are also all set for advanced studies in the life sciences, medicine, dentistry, veterinary scientific research, and allied self-controls.
