What are the prerequisite courses for admission into the MBT program?

All students should have at least one course in either Genetics or Molecular Biology prior to applying to the MBT program.  It is recommended but not required that prospective students have coursework in chemistry or organic chemistry.  If you have a question regarding these prerequisites, please contact the MBT program. 

If you do not have at least a genetics or molecular biology course, these may be taken through Open University or a community college. Some of the prerequisites are offered as short, intensive courses during the summer. These short courses are non-credit courses and cannot be applied to a degree, but do fulfill the prerequisites for the program.
