Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

In addition to our Biology major, Houston Baptist University also offers a Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BCMB) major. 

BCMB is an interdisciplinary major with courses in biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics included. 

It is the toughest major.

This major incorporates the training needed for students to compete for spaces in medical school, dental school and graduate programs in the biological sciences, in addition to entry-level employment in biomedical research at academic institutions and in the biotechnology industry.

BCMB students are encouraged to apply for summer positions in research institutions. Students from the HBU have been accepted into summer research programs at University of Texas Health Science Center - Houston, University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Baylor College of Medicine, University of Houston, or Rice University. 

BCMB and Biology are housed in the Department of Biology. But the entire College of Science and Math is involved in the BCMB major.
