The Biomolecular Sciences Department offers the following undergraduate and graduate programs of study:


The department maintains a separate webpage, updated frequently with announcements and other department news. There is also more information about department faculty and their research projects. We encourage you to pay us a virtual visit at

The Biomolecular Sciences Department offers instruction in molecular biology, cell biology, genetics, and physiology that is strongly integrated with the theory and practice of molecular biological research. The Department offers two B.S degrees in Biomolecular Sciences, and participates in an additional interdisciplinary program that leads to a B.S. degree in Biochemistry. In addition, the Department offers a Minor in Biomolecular Science appropriate for students with majors other than biomolecular science.

The department is an active mix of students and faculty, classroom instruction and lab research, mostly located on the third floor of Copernicus Hall. Student-centered research is a feature of all undergraduate programs in Biomolecular Sciences. The Biomolecular Sciences Department includes a wide range of modern research equipment in laboratories designed both for class instruction and for independent student research. Special facilities include a protein purification and analysis facility, a cell culture facility, a molecular genetics research laboratory, a laboratory animal care suite, and a computer laboratory. Student-centered biomolecular research activity is also promoted, fostered, and supported by the Biotechnology Institute at CCSU, an interdisciplinary organization (housed in the Biomolecular Sciences Department) that is dedicated to developing college graduates with excellent research skills. The Biomolecular Sciences Department is strongly committed to student advising, and routinely promotes and participates in academic and extracurricular activities aimed at facilitating student learning and success.
