All biochemistry and molecular biology majors must include a research experience as part of their undergraduate program and will be required to present the results of their research experience in on-campus symposia or at regional or national conferences.

This requirement may be satisfied by the successful completion of any one of the following:

  1. An independent research project in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology
  2. A student/faculty collaborative research project in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology
  3. An off-campus internship for credit in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology
  4. A research experience not covered by the above but deemed equivalent by the contributing faculty

Ready to submit a proposal? Proposals should be submitted to the student's faculty advisor, who will determine whether the completed experience satisfies the research experience requirement. Return the signed Research Requirement Form to the department coordinator.

Two major on-campus symposia in which students are encouraged to participate are:
The Biology Student Research Symposium (November)
The Annual Science Student Research Symposium (April)
