Highlights, Special Features and Opportunities

Aside from numerous research and internship opportunities with biochemistry, students can also join organizations like the Student Members of the American Chemical Society (SMACS) to learn more about the professional world of biochemistry.

With an average class size of 23 and a student-faculty ratio of 13:1, interaction between students and faculty is mandatory. Every student at Augustana has a faculty advisor who aids the student in course selection from freshman year to graduation day. Advisors also counsel students on graduate programs and career goals.

Every class is taught by an Augustana professor, never a graduate teaching assistant, from introductory classes to advanced research studies. In larger introductory classes, multiple laboratory component sessions are offered to ensure close student-faculty interaction.
