About Biochemistry

Biochemistry is an interdepartmental program of the Biology and Chemistry departments. The program combines introductory studies in biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics with advanced studies in biology and chemistry and integrative course offerings in biochemistry.

This program provides a broad and deep foundation in both biology and chemistry as a basis for studying the molecular aspects of biological phenomena. An undergraduate biochemistry education is an appropriate preparation for a broad range of graduate studies and careers, including advanced degree programs in the natural sciences and health professions, employment opportunities in research and industry, and academic careers in science education.
