What to Expect
Our 30-credit-hour degree is composed of 21 hours of coursework and at least nine thesis hours.
You can customize your degree with two tracks:
Translational Bioinformatics: Through this track, you’ll work to integrate bioinformatics tools and technologies into clinical workflows. As a graduate of this track, you’ll find ample opportunities within industries and, as genomics enters the clinical arena, within hospitals as well.
Molecular and Computational Biology: With training in molecular and computational biology, you’ll be equipped in the acquisition of experimental data using approaches such as proteomics, metabolomics, genomics and structural biology. Upon graduation, you should find ample opportunities within the pharmaceutical industry and contract research organizations, as well as more traditional academic career paths.
