The T. C. Jenkins Department of Biophysics offers outstanding undergraduate biophysics majors the opportunity to advance their education through a combined, 5-year B.A., M.A. program. Candidates for this program must be current biophysics undergraduates with a departmental GPA of 3.5 or greater and a strong research history. All bachelor’s requirements must be completed before matriculating into the Master’s program.
Students in this program will be required to take courses such as:
|AS.250.685||Proteins & Nucleic Acids||3|
|AS.250.689||Physical Chemistry of Biological Macromolecules||3|
|AS.250.690||Methods in Molecular Biophysics||3|
These courses account for about half of the student’s time. The remaining effort is spent on a substantial research project. A Master's thesis describing the research being carried out is also required.
