Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry

OVERVIEW

Biochemistry explores the chemical processes that allow all living organisms to function and exist. As a biochemistry student, you seek a greater understanding of the basis for life—researching the how and why of cells and organisms.

Biochemistry allows you to gain and improve your skills in both chemistry and life science. Biochemists improve the lives of humans, animals, and plants through research in some of the most significant and constantly expanding scientific fields, including genetics, medicine, and biotechnology. As your knowledge of how chemical processes function on the cellular level grows, your study of biochemistry enables you to fill the demand of an ever-increasing need for biochemists.
