Why Study Biochemistry?
Students graduating with a Biochemistry major will have the ability to communicate in a variety of scientific “languages” and position themselves at the forefront of integrative scientific discovery.
Previously, students desiring to attain a degree in both Biology and Chemistry needed to double major in these fields (or at least add a minor). Biochemistry offers an alternative to the demanding class load required by a Biology-Chemistry double major. While still a large major, biochemistry offers an interdisciplinary degree for those students hoping to pursue studies across both fields.
In addition, Biochemistry allows students greater freedom to explore a wide array of courses and areas within the liberal arts curriculum, as well as providing opportunity to further explore additional courses of interest within the sciences.
