Chemistry

Biochemistry

Some of the most dramatic scientific advances in recent years have been in our understanding of the biochemistry of living organisms. For instance, the phenomenal advances in molecular genetics have opened doors to a wide range of biomedical and agricultural applications that were not imagined just a few decades ago.

The departments of chemistry and biology cooperate in offering students the option of concentrating their studies on this dynamic field of inquiry by majoring in biochemistry. This rigorous program is geared towards giving students a fundamental knowledge in the molecular basis of biological processes.

Students take coursework involving a combination of chemistry and biology courses, culminating in a three-semester advanced biochemistry series, and including extensive research laboratory experience.accredited by the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
