Why This Program?
Understand the chemical processes within living organisms.
Biochemistry is the study of how life works on a molecular level. This program is designed to ensure that you spend more time with your eyes glued to a microscope or a flask than you will with your nose buried in a textbook.
- Practical Hands-On Experience: Going beyond more than just concepts and theories, we believe in the the power of experiential learning. With that, we have created a practical program that will provide every student countless hands-on lab experiences.
- Unparalleled Resources: A biochemistry degree from Briar Cliff is a great foundation for anyone looking to pursue a career in medical studies. 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 with equipment unparalleled by an institution our size.
- Outcome-focused: Our program faculty are accomplished researchers, some conducting studies right here on our campus. The program is designed to give you a variety of experiences at the intersection of biology and chemistry to help set you apart, as you look to apply to graduate schools or begin to pursue a professional career.
