Bachelor of Science


Biochemistry majors focus on the chemistry of living systems.  The major includes coursework in key fundamental areas of biology and chemistry including molecular biology, cellular biology, genetics, analytical chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, and a full year sequence of biochemistry.  The major pushes students to develop their critical thinking, scientific reasoning, and laboratory skills in a true interdisciplinary way.  Students are required to participate in an on-campus research experience as a part of this program.
