Build your path in biochemistry
Our world-class faculty foster an inclusive learning community in the molecular life sciences and are passionate about supporting undergraduate students, both in the classroom and the research laboratories. A degree in our program will help jumpstart your future career by building a strong foundation in critical thinking, biochemistry principles, technical skills and scientific communication.
The department offers two B.S. degrees, both accredited by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB): Biochemistry and Biophysics (BB) and Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB). Both degrees provide students with a foundation in the physical and biological sciences. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of the program, students majoring in BB or BMB cannot seek a dual major or double degree in both majors or in the biohealth sciences, biology, zoology and microbiology majors
