The Biochemistry degree is offered either as a terminal degree or as the first year toward the PhD within The City University of New York. Both introductory and advanced courses are available at Hunter College.
The Biochemistry program of course work, planned with the graduate adviser, is concentrated in one of the following major areas: molecular and cell biology, cancer biology, molecular and developmental genetics, molecular neuroscience, and biotechnology.
Students may fulfill requirements for the MA through either of the following plans:
- Plan A: A minimum of 30 credits of course work plus a passing grade in a written comprehensive examination in the areas covered by the four required courses. The comprehensive examination is given annually in June. Only fully matriculated students who have completed all four required courses may take the comprehensive examination.
- Plan B: A minimum of 24 credits of course work plus a passing grade in a written comprehensive examination and a thesis on an original research problem along with a minimum of 6 credits in original research. The thesis must be approved by both the student's faculty and the MA adviser, and it must be defended before a thesis committee.
