Biochemistry Major (BS)

Major Requirements

General Chemistry (1 or 2 courses):

Students must complete either General Chemistry I and II or Advanced General Chemistry.


Choose one of the following research options:

  • BIOC/BIOL/CHEM 5970 - Independent Study
  • BIOC/BIOL/CHEM 4010 - Collaborative Research

Seminar Requirement:

Biochemistry students must complete four semesters of either biology seminar (BIOL 5961-5964) or chemistry seminar (three semesters of CHEM 5950 and CHEM 5960 in the final semester). Students may be able to mix biology and chemistry seminar experiences across the four semesters, but must end with either  BIOL 5964 or CHEM 5960.


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.
