B.S. in Biochemistry

The B.S. Degree in Biochemistry, an interdisciplinary program, is designed to prepare students for a career in biochemistry or graduate studies. The program combines the value of a liberal education with appropriate classroom and laboratory training in chemistry, biology, math and physics. 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. The emphasis in all courses is on the acquisition of a solid knowledge base combined with hands-on laboratory work using modern equipment. 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.
