Biomolecular Sciences


What Can I Do With A Major In Biomolecular Sciences?

Biomolecular Science spans the boundaries between the traditional biology and chemistry disciplines. Breakthroughs in this field have led to amazing developments in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, genetic engineering and medicine. The field predominantly concerns itself with understanding the interactions between the various systems of a cell as well as learning how these interactions are regulated.

Located in Copernicus Hall, the Biomolecular Sciences Department includes a wide range of modern research equipment in laboratories designed both for class instruction and for independent student research. Special facilities include a protein purification and analysis facility, a cell culture facility, a molecular genetics research laboratory, a laboratory animal care suite, a microbiology lab (certified by the Connecticut State Department of Public Health), and a computer laboratory. Student-centered biomolecular research activity is also promoted, fostered, and supported by the Biotechnology Institute at CCSU, an interdisciplinary organization (housed in the Biomolecular Sciences Department) that is dedicated to developing college graduates with excellent research skills.
