- Data Handling and Project Design
- Essential Physiology
- Genetics and Evolution
- Introductory Microbiology and Immunology
In year 2, the focus will be more on applied microbiology. You’ll look more deeply into how life functions on the molecular level.
- Applied Microbiology
- Applied Molecular Biology
- Biology of Disease
- Human Metabolism
- Research Methods
In the final year of the program, you’ll explore the cutting edge of your field of specialty, as well as conducting an extensive and detailed capstone research project of your own.
