If you are interested in an industrial career or graduate study in biotechnology, you may choose to "double major" in both Biology and Chemistry or even Biochemistry. We have several courses in the areas of molecular biology including bioinformatics. If this area is for you then contact Dr. Steve Wright to select the ideal mix of courses to develop the background you will need.
