The program in biochemistry provides a foundation in the biological and physical sciences, with an emphasis on their application to the molecular explanation of the structural and functional dynamics of living systems.
Students who graduate from our program have a wide variety of career options. Upon graduation, they are qualified to move directly into jobs in industrial, government, and academic laboratories and are prepared to apply for admission to many healthcare professional programs, including medical, nursing, and pharmacy schools. Our students are also well prepared for graduate studies in biochemistry and, with additional electives, for graduate studies in biology and chemistry.
