Biochemistry

Degree to be earned: 
B.S.

male student at sinkBiochemistry is the study of living organisms and their biological processes. You will study macromolecules such as carbohydrates, lipids, nucleic acids, and proteins. Students interested in both chemistry and biology can find a great compromise with a major that bridges the gap between the two and overlaps molecular biology and genetics as well. Practice research techniques, understand data interpretation, and dig deeper into an exciting field of science. 

“Biochemistry is applicable to everyday life. You learn why things happen. Not just what things happen.”      Geoff Clay ‘13
