St. Olaf College

Biomolecular Science

Our Mission

The mission of the St. Olaf Biomolecular Science program is to create and nurture an environment within which students and faculty pursue scientific inquiry at the interface of biology and chemistry.

Overview of the Concentration

The Biomolecular Science program will appeal to students who are seeking education in biology and chemistry and wish to pursue a cross-disciplinary selection of courses and research.

BMOLS 201, Explorations in Biomolecular Science (0.25 credit), introduces students to the breadth of this scientific area.  An experiential learning component takes Biomolecular Science out of the classroom and requires students to explore its applications in fields such as cell and molecular biology and biochemistry.
