Bachelor of Science in Chemistry with emphasis in Biological Chemistry

Overview

Biological chemistry is the study of the structure, composition and chemical reactions of substances found in living systems. This option provides the necessary link between chemistry and biology, which allows students to learn both the theory and technical skills required to initiate and successfully complete scientific problems at the interface of these two disciplines. The biological chemistry option is particularly well suited for students interested in the molecular basis of medicine. The option provides all the necessary background material required for admission to any medical, osteopathic or veterinary school in the country.
