The School of Biological Sciences has an active and dynamic undergraduate and graduate teaching programs in the Division of Cell Biology & Biophysics and the Division of Molecular Biology & Biochemistry. Our undergraduate degrees focus on molecular and cellular biological disciplines. We offer emphasis areas including pre-health professions, bioinformatics, biotechnology, and medical technology. Our graduate program includes a M.S. in Cell & Molecular Biology, and a M.A. in Biology that leads to a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist certificate. Our doctoral degree program is part of UMKC’s Interdisciplinary Ph.D. program with divisions in Cell Biology & Biophysics and Molecular Biology & Biochemistry.
