The Bachelor of Arts in Biochemistry is for students who wish to obtain a biochemistry background that is ancillary to another major or area of interest. This major requires sufficient breadth and depth in biochemistry while still providing flexibility in choice of courses in order to meet students’ needs and interests. This major is appropriate for students intending to pursue careers in medicine, veterinary medicine, dentistry, secondary school teaching, industrial sales, or other fields, such as graduate work in molecular biology, that benefit from a biochemistry background. The B.A. Biochemistry major is not intended for students planning to pursue graduate work in biochemistry or a professional career as an industrial biochemist.
