2016-2017 Catalog


Majors in Biochemistry take a core of chemistry and biology courses including molecular biology. The curriculum involves the study of the chemical characteristics and reactions of organisms or living systems.

All of the chemistry and biology faculty carry on active research programs in which students are encouraged to participate. Biochemistry majors sometimes carry out projects in which they are guided by both a biology and a chemistry professor. Students can perform research as independent study or through the honors program. Based on their academic record and an interview, upperclass students may apply to be teaching assistants.
