Biochemistry Concentration

The Biochemistry concentration leads to a B.S. in Chemistry with an emphasis in biochemistry. This concentration is for students whose interests lie in careers at the biology/chemistry interface. This concentration is popular with students with the goal of attending a graduate professional school (Medical, Dental, Pharmacy, etc.) and students that desire to pursue graduate (MS or PhD) study in bio-related disciplines.
