Major Requirements

The biochemistry major consists of 17 courses plus seminar and an independent research project.

Seminar Requirement

Biochemistry students must complete either three semesters of BIOL 5950: Biology Seminar and one semester of BIOL 5951: Biology Seminar Presentation, or the two semester sequence (fall and spring of the same year) of CHEM 5960: Research Techniques I and CHEM 5961: Research Techniques II.

Independent Research Project Requirement:

BIOC 5970: Independent Study or BIOC 4010: Collaborative Research or written documentation of an appropriate independent research project from the program directors.


(BIOC, BIOL, and CHEM courses listed above count as inside the major and do not qualify for breadth of study. BIOL and CHEM courses taken as preparation or electives do count for breadth of study.)
