Curriculum

The first two years of the Immunology and Medical Microbiology Curriculum will provide a strong foundation in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Physics. In the fall semester of the first year students will begin a series of Microbiology and Immunology Colloquium courses which will introduce students to the fields of immunology and medical microbiology. The third and fourth year of the curriculum will include advanced courses in immunology, bacterial pathogenesis, biochemistry, genetics, and virology. In the senior year students will participate in a senior colloquium and have opportunities for research and professional field experiences.
