Partners: Nursing program to start in fall
Degree combines elements of ‘CSI’
Beginning this fall, Harding Universitywill offer the latest interdisciplinary approach to the sciences that studentswho follow TV shows such as CSI might appreciate.
Though the university offers separatedegrees in biochemistry, biology and chemistry, the new bachelor of sciencedegree in biochemistry and molecular biology combines elements of all three.
“The students themselves are more awareof this kind of approach, just from their exposure to TV,” said David Cole,professor and chairman of the physical science department. “The dividing linebetween chemistry and biology has become more blurred.”
