The biochemistry major is an excellent option for those students who wish to have a strong foundation in an interdisciplinary science.
Today, many new jobs are being created in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries that demand the breadth and flexibility available with a biochemistry background.
Biochemistry uniquely examines the cellular and sub-cellular levels of life through the "eyes" of molecular chemical reactions, structures, and energetics. In other words, life is examined at its most fundamental physical level. This major provides a strong background in both chemistry and biology with additional support from physics and mathematics.
