According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics the prospects for employment of biochemists is projected to increase by 31 percent from 2010 to 2020, at a rate significantly faster than the average for all occupations.
A degree in biochemistry provides students with a broad background in the chemical and molecular aspects of the life sciences. Biochemistry majors graduate ready for employment or graduate school at the interface of chemistry and biology, and medical, dental or pharmacy school.
The interdisciplinary nature of this degree can make our students more versatile when looking for a job, professional degrees, and graduate school options. A degree in Biochemistry is great foundation for students pursuing pre-med and pre-professional, especially pre-pharmacy, who may want a more in-depth chemistry background. With courses in chemistry, biology, physics, mathematics and statistics, students learn the key concepts preparing them for the MCAT.
