Biomedical Sciences - Microbiology Emphasis

Graduates from this emphasis will be prepared to enter a graduate program in microbiology or biotechnology. It would be an excellent emphasis for a premedical student interested in infectious disease. In addition, the laboratory-rich aspect of this emphasis will prepare a graduate for becoming a microbiology/biotechnology laboratory technician. Because it is impossible to design one curriculum to fulfill the requirements of every graduate school or laboratory, it is the student's responsibility, in consultation with an advisor, to see that the requirements are fulfilled for the particular school(s)/job(s) in which the student is interested. This major, although directed, allows sufficient flexibility to accommodate specific requirements that various programs may have.
