study the chemical processes that occur in living cells as well as the
structure and function of proteins, lipids, carbohydrates and nucleic acids.
Biochemistry gives students a solid background in the fundamental principles of
chemistry and biology. Students learn cutting edge science and how to apply
their knowledge to solve problems through critical thinking. Students will
graduate ready to enter the workforce directly into research or to pursue
further study in graduate or medical school. Students can also earn an American Chemical Society
(ACS) certified degree. Undergraduate research, internships, or shadowing a medical professional are greatly encouraged.
The Biochemistry major is designed for students directly entering the workforce or continuing their education in graduate school.
This concentration prepares students who plan to attend professional schools in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, veterinary, optometry, and dentistry. Our Pre-Medicine Committee will help guide Pre-Medicine students in preparation for the MCAT, DAT, OAT, or
other professional school exam.
