Course Overview

Microbiology is the study of microscopic organisms, including viruses, bacteria, archaea, fungi, and protists. Microorganisms are important for both the good that they do (nutrient cycling, production of antibiotics, bioremediation, food production) and the bad (food poisoning, infectious diseases, epidemics). Our program provides intensive training in modern microbiology, including cutting-edge research in genomics and genetic engineering. Download Course Catalog.

Career Opportunities

Microbiologists pursue careers in many fields, including agricultural, environmental, food, and industrial microbiology; public health; resource management; basic research; education; and pharmaceuticals. Jobs in all of these fields are available at the BS level as well as the MS and PhD levels. The microbiology major also incorporates the requirements expected for admission to medical, dental, and other health professional schools, and to graduate schools in microbiology, molecular biology, biochemistry, and related disciplines.
