Biology with Concentration in Biotechnology (B.S.)

The concentration in biotechnology is designed for students with a strong interest in molecular biology and genetics. Courses will prepare students in both conceptual aspects of molecular biology and their practical application in biotechnology and genetic engineering. CHE 420 or CHE 556 can be counted toward the required 30 semester hours of Biology needed for the major.
