Biochemistry Degrees and Programs

  • Biochemists study the chemical processes that occur in living cells as well as the structure and function of proteins, lipids, carbohydrates and nucleic acids. Biochemistry gives students a solid background in the fundamental principles of chemistry and biology. Students learn cutting edge science and how to apply their knowledge to solve problems through critical thinking. Students will graduate ready to enter the workforce directly into research or to pursue further study in graduate or medical school. Students can also earn an American Chemical Society (ACS) certified degree. Undergraduate research, internships, or shadowing a medical professional are greatly encouraged.

  • Major

    Biochemistry, B.S.

    The Biochemistry major is designed for students directly entering the workforce or continuing their education in graduate school.

    Concentrations

    Pre-Medicine Concentration (B.S. in Biochemistry)

    This concentration prepares students who plan to attend professional schools in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, veterinary, optometry, and dentistry. Our Pre-Medicine Committee will help guide Pre-Medicine students in preparation for the MCAT, DAT, OAT, or other professional school exam.
