About this program

Biochemistry B.S.

The Biochemistry program allows a student to combine knowledge of both biology and chemistry to explain life processes in terms of chemical reactions with living cells. A Biochemistry degree can not only prepare students for professional careers as chemists; it may also serve as the basis for work in areas outside pure chemistry, such as materials science, medicine and other health-related fields, nutrition, pharmacology, patent law, business, and environmental science, to name a few.
