Biochemistry Major Combined Graduate Degree Options
Accelerated Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees
Biochemistry majors are eligible to apply for accelerated bachelors degree in science (BS) with either a master of science (MS) in chemistry or a masters in business administration (MBA). The Biochemistry, BS/Chemistry, MS and Biochemistry, BS/MBA programs allow students to use graduate courses taken as an undergraduate toward both the undergraduate and graduate degrees, thus reducing the normal time required to complete both bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Students must apply and be admitted to the degree programs. Generally, students must be accepted into the combined degree program by the start of their junior year. General information on the accelerated bachelor’s and Master’s degrees is available in the Undergraduate Bulletin.
In addition to the accelerated Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees, Biochemistry Majors after completion of their BS, can also pursue a Master’s degree in Biochemistry and Cell Biology at Stony Brook. This MS program can be completed in three semesters, and provides excellent opportunity for students to pursue independent research and advanced studies in Biochemistry and Cell Biology.
