About

The M.S. program in Applied Molecular Biology (APMB) at University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) is an intensive, two semester graduate program that combines state-of-the-art training in the laboratory methods of molecular biology with a set of four lecture courses that provide the theoretical background for the field.

Overview

An AMB Open House for all students interested in this 9-month Master’s Degree program is held during February during which current APMB students present the results of their research project. Information about enrolling in the program are also provided.

Program Overview

The Applied Molecular Biology  program at University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC)  has been designed specifically for full-time students who have an interest in careers in the biotechnology industry and have completed their bachelor’s degrees. Because of the intensive nature of the program, students planning on completing the degree in two semesters are generally unable to hold outside employment. 

Some students choose to complete the APMB in four semesters, taking the lecture courses in the first year and the laboratory courses in the second year. This enables them to hold outside employment.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Biological Chemistry
  • Approaches to Molecular Biology
  • Advanced Molecular Biology Laboratory
  • Eukaryotic Genetics & Molecular Biology
