Program Overview

What Eastern New Mexico University says about their program:
"If books like The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks or the Hot Zone appeal to you, or if you've ever been inspired by films like Jurassic Park, the microbiology, molecular biology and biotechnology degree will fuel your interests. This emphasis allows you to study how microbes influence our lives, how DNA functions in cells, and how our understanding of molecular and microbiological processes can be used in research and industry. While completion times varies from person to person, you can reasonably complete this degree in four to five years."
