Biochemistry and Biophysics

A master's degree in Biochemistry and Biophysics from Rensselaer prepares students for jobs in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and other related industry sectors. It is also well suited to students wishing to upgrade their skills while employed in industry, or to obtain additional training prior to proceeding to professional study in medicine, veterinary science, dentistry, law, business, etc. Those with a B.S. degree in a field not closely related to modern biological science may also benefit from the program.

Biochemistry and Biophysics

Biochemistry and biophysics, closely-related fields, use tools from a different science to study life. Specifically, Biochemistry studies the chemical processes and transformations in living organisms, while Biophysics applies the theories and methods of physics to questions of biology.

Bioinformatics and Molecular Biology

Bioinformatics, also known as computational biology, is the study of biological systems through computational and statistical models. Molecular Biology is the study of the molecular components of living things. This major requires knowledge of biology, computer science, and information technology.

Rensselaer is one of the few universities to offer an undergraduate program in this emerging field. Most of the instructors maintain active research programs in different aspects of computational biology, from database analysis to molecular simulations.
