biochemistry lab
Type of Degree: Major
Department:  Chemistry and Biochemistry Department

Biochemistry 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.


Medical School Fast Track

Through an agreement with Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, five spots in medical school are reserved each year for qualified Heidelberg students to directly enroll in the program.
