B.S. in Biochemistry

The B.S. degree in Biochemistry, accredited by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, is designed to prepare students for a career in biochemistry or graduate studies. Completion of the degree requirements can also increase a student’s chances of success in medical, dental or other related health programs by helping students develop a strong academic foundation needed for success in such professional schools. The focus is on a molecular approach to studying living systems. The biochemistry major can choose to specialize in related areas of chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics or structural biology, pre-med, allied health sciences or biomedical sciences by a careful selection of elective courses. Each student is expected to carry out a laboratory-based research project.

Completion of a biochemistry degree is an excellent path towards success in medical, dental or other related health programs. Students develop a strong academic foundation needed for success in such professional schools. Students interested in applying to professional schools benefit from specialized advising from Rowan's Office of Health Professions.

Students who graduate with BS in Biochemistry will be certified by the American Chemical Society ONLY IF they take the following courses as electives.

  • Inorganic Chemistry (CHEM 06300)
