Undergraduate Education

All students will take a college-level biology course. For some of you, molecular cell biology will be an essential tool for mastering a field in depth. For others, you will build your ability to understand how computational biology supports arguments and solve problems. A variety of courses will be available to meet this requirement, based on your field of interest.

Additionally, UC Merced offers an undergraduate major leading to a bachelor's degree in molecular cell biology. This educational experience provides students with knowledge of the foundations of cellular and molecular cell biology and the skills needed to apply molecular cell biology to real-world phenomena in the social sciences, natural sciences and engineering.
