Bachelor of Arts in Biochemistry
In medicine, it's errors in biochemistry that cause most diseases. That's why so many students interested in medicine are attracted to the biochemistry major at Hanover. By focusing on the molecular aspects of biology, especially DNA, you can better understand the chemical processes and reactions that occur in humans and other living creatures. You may also develop a better understanding of food production, how to grow better crops and how to develop biofuels for energy.
With small class sizes, you'll work closely with experienced faculty and have an uncommon level of access to the college's well-supplied lab.
As a selective liberal arts college, Hanover is looking for those students who have completed a rigorous college-preparatory curriculum. To be eligible for admission, an applicant must have completed the following high school courses:
- Four years of English (literature and composition)
- At least two years of foreign language
- At least two years of mathematics, including Algebra II
The following courses are recommended as part of a well-rounded college-preparatory curriculum:
- At least three years of laboratory science
- At least three years of social studies
- At least one year of fine or performing arts
Students who have taken AP, IB and dual-credit courses may be eligible for Hanover College credits.Hanover College has adopted a test-optional admission policy. If you choose to submit test scores as part of your application, there is no preference for either the SAT or ACT. Hanover College's school code for the SAT is ""1290"" and our ACT code is ""1200"".

Scholarships & funding
Hanover College invests heavily in the future success of our students by offering a robust financial aid program. We offer a combination of merit and need-based aid to international students, known as the HAQ Scholarship, annually renewed and applied to tuition only. Admitted International students are offered a guaranteed minimum HAQ scholarship based on GPA. GPAs are calculated on a 4.0 scale. GPAs may be manually calculated if your transcripts are not currently on a 4.0 scale basis. The NCAA guidelines are used for these calculations.
- 1827 Scholarship: $28,000, for admitted students with 4.0 and above in weighted GPA
- Bicentennial Scholarship: $26,000, for admitted students with 3.75-3.99 in weighted GPA
- Founder's Scholarship: $24,000, for admitted students with 3.5-3.74 in weighted GPA
- Presidential Scholarship: $23,000, for admitted students with 3.25-3.49 in weighted GPA
- Trustee Scholarship: $22,000, for admitted students with 3.0-3.24 in weighted GPA
- Dean's Scholarship: $20,000, for admitted students with 2.99 and below in weighted GPA
In addition to this investment in our students, Hanover also offers a four-year graduation guarantee to all students, promising students will graduate in four years (eight semesters), or tuition for a fifth year is free.
As noted, The Princeton Review named Hanover College one of the nation’s top 50 “Best Value” private colleges, along with Princeton, Dartmouth, Duke and Stanford. Hanover College was chosen for our excellent academics, generous financial aid packages and relatively low costs of attendance.
Tuition fee for the course is $58,544 per academic year, including estimated book and insurance costs. Visit the university's website for more information.
As a biochemistry major, you'll spend your time studying the molecules and reactions found in living systems. You'll study metabolism and how humans convert food and nutrients into energy that allows us to move and grow. And you'll study how humans make complex biomolecules through biosynthesis pathways. Along the way, you'll use sophisticated lab equipment to get a much closer look, including:
- Spectophometer to study enzyme reactions
- Gel electrophoresis to isolate and identify proteins and nucleic acids
- High-pressure liquid chromatography to isolate proteins and metabolites
- Medical doctor
- High school teacher
- Pharmaceutical sales
- Lab technician
- Research assistant
