Graduate Program Information

New York City Campus

The 34-credit MS program in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (MSBMB) offers students a professional development graduate degree with enhanced capability and competitiveness in career-related biochemistry, molecular biology, and health-related fields. This is a thesis-based graduate program that contains training in ethical and regulatory issues, a requirement of all new Federal grant applicants. The curriculum emphasizes technological applications and is designed to provide students with a strong grounding in running a research laboratory.

In addition to Pace University's research opportunities, students have the opportunity to do their research in the Department of Neuronal Cell Signaling at Cornell-Weil Medical School or have an international experience at the University of Technology, Sydney, Australia. 

The program can be completed in one year.
