The BCMB program is primarily designed for students who will spend their career in the biological sciences or in a closely related discipline. The program prepares students for academic graduate programs in the life sciences, professional programs in the health sciences (medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, optometry, public health, etc.), entry level technical positions in academia/government/private sectors, and many other areas inside and outside of the life sciences. Click here for more specific information on career paths, links to job search sites, and employment opportunities available to the BCMB graduate.
