Biochemistry/Molecular Biology Program
Bachelor of Science Degree — Program Overview
How does life work? Biochemistry helps us find the answer, which means it applies to medicine, dentistry, veterinary studies — and pretty much anything else that has to do with nature or science! Simply put, biochemistry is the study of how life works at the molecular level.
In our program, you’ll spend more time with your eyes glued to a microscope or a flask than you will with your nose buried in a textbook. That’s because we believe in hands-on experience, with wide variety of tools at our disposal that will make you anxious to get to lab and see what’s new.
Our facilities include one of the region’s only educational cadaver labs, new chemistry labs with state-of-the-art equipment and a revamped molecular biology workshop that makes DNA analysis a breeze. You can probe the actions of proteins in a cell using “lab-on-a-chip” technology or uncover the compounds responsible for the odor of a Life Savers® candy.
WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH A BIOCHEMISTRY DEGREE?
A biochemistry degree from BCU is a great launching point for pursuing a career in medical studies. Or, you can land a job elsewhere in the health care field, food processing, pharmaceuticals, the oil industry, government research — and even forensic science!
