The Genetics and Genomics Major Program

The Genetics and Genomics major provides a broad background in the biological, mathematical, and physical sciences basic to the study of heredity, gene expression and evolution. The major is sufficiently flexible to accommodate students interested in the subject either as a basic discipline in the biological sciences or in terms of its applied aspects such as biotechnology, medicine, and agriculture.

The Program. The Genetics and Genomics program begins with the four-course, upper division core curriculum that provides an introduction to the principles of genetics, biochemistry, and cell biology. Students then take additional upper division courses in specialized areas of modern genetics including gene expression, evolution, development, human genetics and genomics, as well as a laboratory courses in the principles of genetics and genomics. Additional upper division courses in biological sciences, as well as internship/research coursework can be chosen to fulfill required elective units.

Career Alternatives. The Genetics and Genomics degree provides suitable preparation for a wide variety of careers, including teaching, research, work with biotechnology companies, medicine, and all the health sciences. It is also an excellent background for students wishing to continue their education in a graduate program, a teacher-training program, medical school, veterinary school, or other professional schools.
