Biochemistry

Campus Location: 
Crete
School: 
College of Arts and Sciences
Overview

Biochemistry is the integration of knowledge from the biological and chemical sciences, among others, leading to the study and application of chemical interactions in living systems.  In addition to building conceptual knowledge in biology, chemistry and biochemistry, students in the Biochemistry program will develop fluency in quantitative reasoning and communication skills, through both writing and presentations.  The program includes significant laboratory and research experiences, in which students will practice experimental design, execution and data analysis through exposure to current instrumentation and methodologies. Throughout the curriculum, professional conduct and ethical decision-making will be emphasized.  Students will ultimately become proficient at applying interdisciplinary concepts and tools to biochemical problems.    

 

Requirements for the Biochemistry Major:

  1. BIO 110, 111, 112, 335.
  2. CHM 110, 125, 126, 195, 205, 206, 210, 303, 330, and 430.
  3. Complete either the Biology research sequence (BIO 351, 495, 496) or the Chemistry research sequence (CHM 351, 495, 496).  Additionally, complete CHM 494 as a capstone course.
  4. Three additional courses are required:
    1. One course chosen from BIO 317, 331, 348, 349,  or 356.
    2. One course chosen from CHM 322, 326, 411.
    3. Complete the following cognates: PHY 107 (or 201) and MTH 235.

BIO 295, PHY 108 (or 202), and MTH 236 are strongly recommended. MTH 236 is a prerequisite for CHM 411. PHY 108 (or 202) is required for entrance into most medical schools.
