Augusta University's College of Science and Math offers a two-year, 36 credit-hour, thesis-based Master of Science in Biomolecular Science degree. The program provides education and training for careers in pharmaceutical, biotechnology, biomedical, and chemical industries, or for entry into doctoral research or professional degree programs. With a requirement to complete a mentored research project, the program prepares students to investigate a wide range of biomedical-related topics including study of the mechanism of disease and development of new drugs.
Students will choose a concentration - Cell and Molecular Biology or Medicinal Chemistry. Through the combined and innovative curriculum, students will gain interdisciplinary knowledge of the biological systems and responses to bioactive compounds at a physiological, cellular, and molecular level. Fundamental skills, including data analysis, problem solving, critical evaluation of scientific literature, oral and written communication, and experimental methods, will be reinforced.
