The Biochemistry curriculum is designed to prepare students for the biomedical sciences and/or health professions through a strong background in chemistry and its application to biological systems. The degree, hosted by the Chemistry Department, prepares students to immediately begin careers in biotechnology and meets or exceeds the requirements for those students pursuing a professional degree, e.g. medicine, dentistry, and pharmacy as well as those interested in graduate work in associated sciences, e.g. biochemistry, pharmacology, and molecular biology.
