Biochemistry students must complete four semesters of either biology seminar (BIOL 5950 and BIOL 5951) or chemistry seminar (CHEM 5950 and CHEM 5951).
Students may choose to enroll in one of the following:
Written documentation of an appropriate independent research project from the program directors may also be substituted.
