About this program
Biochemistry encompasses both biology and chemistry. Biochemists focus on the molecular aspects of living organisms, particularly the structures, functions, and interactions of biological macromolecules (proteins, nucleic acids, lipids, and carbohydrates). The biochemistry major provides strong foundation in experimental design, literature research, critical thinking, and analytical reasoning skills. Students will learn the tools and concepts necessary to prepare them for graduate study in biochemistry, industry employment, and professional programs in the healthcare field.
