Bachelor of Science in ChemistryConcentration in Biochemistry and Chemical Biology


By studying the chemical processes within living organisms, and influencing those processes through the application of chemical techniques, chemical biologists seek to understand life at the cellular and molecular level. Through this new and exciting approach, this field is having a profound impact on our world, revolutionizing healthcare, advancing agriculture, expanding the frontier of biotechnology, and formulating live-saving medicines.


ACS-approved programs offer a broad-based and rigorous chemistry education that gives students intellectual, experimental, and communication skills to become effective scientific professionals.

Our four-year program in this dynamic transdisciplinary subject provides students with a strong foundation for a career in scientific research, but also for professions within the fields of biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and forensic science, for example. It is also an ideal preparation for entrance into a graduate program with a scientific or medical focus.
