The Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry is a professional degree designed for students
planning careers in biochemistry, medicine, clinical chemistry or other health-related
areas of chemistry. The program includes advanced coursework in biochemistry, associated
credits in biology, physics, and mathematics, plus fulfillment of university and college
core curriculum requirements. The Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry has a more structured
curriculum than the Bachelor of Arts in Biochemistry.
The Bachelor of Arts with a major in Biochemistry is a four-year major designed to prepare students to teach sciences at the high school level in the areas of biochemistry, chemistry and biology. Additionally, the program serves well those who wish to go into medicine, dentistry or other biologically related professional programs of study.
As a Biochemistry major, you’ll take courses focusing on:
Our success is measured through your achievements as well as the quality of our intellectual contributions to the improvement of society.
