Bryn Mawr College to Offer New Major in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

Bryn Mawr College, the highly rated liberals arts college for women in Pennsylvania, has announced that it will offer a new major in biochemistry and molecular biology. The new degree program will begin this fall.

white“Biochemistry has really become its own field distinct from chemistry and biology,” says professor of chemistry Susan White, who led the process to create the new program. “Students were already doing BMB concentrations but they struggled with deciding on whether to major in biology or chemistry and their academic path wasn’t as clear as it will be now.”

Professor White’s research focuses on the structure of RNA. She is a graduate of Dartmouth College and holds a Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University.
