MCLS Coursework

The MCLS program requires that students obtain a high level of proficiency in the core foundations of the fields, including biochemistry and molecular biology. In addition, all MCLS students will participate in several courses designed to connect concepts acquired from the laboratory, seminars, and other specialized classes; and they will be required to master the reading of scientific literature. Flexibility in terms of specific course requirements will be exercised for students with strong backgrounds in the core areas. Completion of formal coursework is expected within one to two years.
