What will you study on the BSc Biology (Molecular Biology)?
You will gain a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of biology from molecular to whole organism biology and develop an understanding of chemical principles for biologists. You will take additional core modules to develop your knowledge of biochemistry (particularly enzyme function and metabolic pathways). You will also take a practical module from Biomedical Sciences: Cellular Sciences, enabling you to review the principles and practices of cellular pathology. You will extend your knowledge of cellular and molecular biology and the molecular basis of disease, and consider gene expression in the normal and diseased states.
What will you gain?
Throughout the course you will develop essential skills in laboratory and field work and build detailed knowledge of research methodologies. All pathways focus on core biological disciplines including plant and animal biology, cell biology, microbial sciences and molecular biology.
