Minor in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

Lab and field research are intrinsic to the program

Biochemists study the most basic of life processes, such as identifying the way in which DNA, which carries genetic information, is transferred between cells and can be manipulated. This has led to the development of new technologies such as molecular biology, biotechnology and genetic engineering.

The biochemistry program prepares students for competitive and rewarding careers in science, medicine or research. The biochemistry major places a strong emphasis on practical, hands-on experience, making graduates of the biochemistry program well prepared for the job market.

Biochemistry provides an excellent background for biotechnology research, medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, nutrition, veterinary medicine and education.
