The Molecular Biology, Cell Biology and Biochemistry Graduate Program (MCBGP) offers a five year combined bachelors/masters degree program leading to either a Master of Arts (MA) or a Master of Science (MS) degree in Biology. The program is designed to develop expertise in key areas of modern biological science, notably Molecular Biology and Genetics, Cell Biology, Biochemistry and Developmental Biology. Benefits of 5th Year MA Degree Students will gain advanced knowledge of biological systems, training in reading and analyzing the primary research literature, and practice in communicating scientific concepts and data to a general audience. MS students will also participate in research and present their findings, gaining critical laboratory and computational skills. Knowledge and skills gained in the program can be applied to many future goals including medical school, PhD programs, MD/PhD programs, the biotechnology industry, teaching, and intellectual property law. 5th Year Masters Program 5th year Masters programs are open to Brown students. Applicants must meet or exceed requirements for Brown undergraduate concentration in Biology. Students interested in the program are strongly encouraged to contact the MCBGP as early as the start of their junior year. Must apply for 5th year Master’s program before completion of undergraduate studies. Application form with a proposed curriculum should be submitted to the Graduate School. Students will complete a minimum of 8 tuition units in MCBGP approved courses. All courses will be taken for a letter grade (A/B/C, not S/NC) A grade of B or higher is required in 8 courses Students will demonstrate competency in the four MCBGP core disciplines of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Cell Biology, Biochemistry and Developmental Biology Up to 2 credits taken during undergraduate study can be applied to the 5thyear masters if these courses were not used to fulfill an undergraduate concentration requirement. The 5th year masters curriculum will not include BIOL 2030 (Foundations for Advanced Study in the Life Sciences) There is no financial support available through the MCB Graduate Program for 5th year masters training.
