This option will create a new area of emphasis for the College of Technology, providing an area of specialty for students who wish to go into a biomolecular science career as a laboratory technician and/or pursue a baccalaureate degree through the Pathways program at Central Connecticut State University in Biomolecular Sciences. The associate’s degree can also serve as a career-oriented degree for students who choose to enter the workforce in various laboratory environments such as an academic research laboratory, environmental laboratory, or medical laboratory.
In addition to the outcomes listed for the Technology Studies degree, students who complete the Biomolecular Science Option will:
Understand and apply the scientific method
Comprehend and apply basic techniques of scientific investigation
Complete laboratory analyses, compile data, and construct technical reports
Understand the classifications of organisms in the six kingdoms
Complete a systematic study of human anatomy and physiology
Understand and apply the principles of microbiology
Understand the principles and implications of genetics and research
