The University of Denver's Bachelor of Arts program in molecular biology offers students the opportunity to study areas that include cell biology, biophysics, RNA biology, endocrinology and more. Students complete 44 hours of biology coursework and 20 hours of chemistry coursework, and can also complete a concentration in cognitive neuroscience.
With fewer requirements than our Bachelor of Science option, the BA degree allows students the flexibility to combine their interests in biology with other disciplines such as law, policy or business. Graduates are well prepared for jobs or graduate work related to these disciplines, and they may also find work in medicine, dentistry or physical therapy.
