Biochemistry (BA)

The BA program in biochemistry provides students with a course of study in the chemical processes of living organisms. Among the endeavors that depend upon a thorough grounding in this area are discoveries of new drugs, the recognition and control of new pathogens, development of new catalysts for energy transformations, and the production of new materials and solutions to problems such as food production and environmental remediation.

This program is a flexible option for students interested in a liberal arts degree with a strong grounding in physical science. It is ideal for students seeking to complete two degrees. Students wishing to pursue a scientific graduate degree should consider the BS in biochemistry.
