For all those MCBs out there

does the degree we get from Berkeley say that we majored in Molecular and cellular biology or will it say the emphasis that we choose in MCB. For example, in I major in MCB and do a emphasis in biochem, will it say biochem anywhere on the degree I get?

    I just know that for MCB, you get a B.A., not a B.S., which I find strange.

    ^That's not really strange. None of the science majors in L&S get B.S.s.

    L&S majors only make up about 50-55 units. The B.S. majors in CoE, CoC, CNR, and Haas make up ~100/+ units.

    To the OP's question, I have read that your degree will just say MCB on it, but your transcript will show your track. I don't remember where I read that though.
