Biochemistry Major

This major prepares students for entry into graduate programs in biochemistry and related disciplines. The program serves those interested in biochemical research or forensic science as a career or in pursuing pre-professional programs in medicine or dentistry. The biochemistry curriculum includes the credit-hour equivalent of a major plus a minor; therefore, no minor is required.

Only those chemistry courses passed with a grade of “C-” or better apply to the biochemistry major.
