The Biochemistry B.S. degree program offers students a focused, intensive education in the natural sciences and in the field of biochemistry. This degree prepares students for graduate work in biochemistry, for biochemical and biomedical careers in industry/government, and for post-graduate studies in the health sciences.
This degree is an extended major and no minor is required. A grade of “C-” or better is required for each course in this program to count toward the major. Students should note that programs differ in the minimum grade required.
Biochemistry is, by nature, an interdisciplinary area of study, and the required coursework reflects that reality, offering a complete education in the biochemical, biomedical, and technical fields. The student must satisfy the non-chemistry course requirements below.
Note: MTH 1410 counts as a Quantitative Literacy General Studies course; the Biology and Physics courses count as Natural and Physical Science General Studies courses.
