Chemistry, B.S. - Concentration: Biochemistry

The B.S. in Chemistry with a Biochemistry concentration is one of the most popular options for students pursuing a degree in chemistry. The concentration is very interdisciplinary: students are required to take five (5) Biology courses along with their Chemistry curriculum, allowing the student to earn a Biology minor in addition to their Chemistry major. In addition to the required biology courses, this focused concentration requires the student to take course(s) in Organic/Biochemistry, Drug Discovery or Medicinal Chemistry, as well as one semester of Physical and Analytical Chemistry. We believe that this interdisciplinary curriculum gives this student population a focused, yet well-rounded curriculum where they take more courses directly relevant to their area of interest while establishing a solid foundation in Chemistry.
