Student Learning Outcomes
A student who successfully completes a major in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology will possess the ability to:
- demonstrate an understanding the fundamentals of chemistry and biology and the key principles of biochemistry and molecular biology;
- obtain, evaluate, and use information from the scientific literature;
- dissect a question into its key features, design experiments, and interpret results (both quantitatively and qualitatively);
- think in an integrated manner and look at questions from different perspectives; and,
- communicate effectively, both orally and in writing, to both scientific and non-scientific communities.
Oregon Preliminary Teaching Licensure in Biology
A student majoring in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology must also complete a Secondary Education major with Licensure. In order to complete the Secondary Education major with Licensure, students should begin taking education courses no later than their sophomore year. The student must be advised by faculty in both majors.
