What Can You Do With a Biochemistry Degree?
As a biochemistry major, you’ll receive one-on-one mentoring from your professors, and you can collaborate with them on research projects. You can also join our nationally recognized student chapter of the American Chemical Society to form even stronger connections with your professors, as well as with your fellow students and with industry professionals.
Funding support from the Robert A. Welch Foundation allows us to offer you expanded opportunities to conduct research with your professors, and then to potentially present your research results at regional and national scientific conferences. Participating in research will also make you a more competitive graduate.
Biochemistry relies on quality equipment and instruments. We keep our labs and equipment up to date so you receive the best and most current instruction, as well as dynamic laboratory and research experiences. You will also have access to the SciFinder science article search service.
