The University of Arkansas at Little Rock offers a Bachelor of Science in biology. Students can choose one of five concentrations, including the molecular biotechnology concentration.
The molecular biotechnology concentration is a joint effort between the biology department at UA Little Rock and the Medical Technology department of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. While not intended as pre-medical or pre-professional, the curriculum is designed for students who want to pursue a research career in molecular biotechnology at the bachelor’s degree level.
The program will prepare students for technical occupations in basic and applied molecular biotechnology research and positions with federal and state governmental agencies and private or commercial enterprises that conduct either basic or applied research in biotechnology.
