According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics the prospects for employment of biochemists is projected to continually increase as the demand for individuals with a background in biomedical research grows.
Our biochemistry degree program 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.
