Biochemistry Major

The goal of a liberal arts education is to develop and then employ critical thinking to gain a better understanding of ourselves and the world around us. A foundation for understanding ourselves is understanding our physical bodies and how they function. The basis for this understanding is Biochemistry, the integration of Chemistry and Biology. Studying an integrated subject like Biochemistry de-compartmentalizes scientific disciplines and reflects the type of learning sought after by graduate programs, business, industry, and government.
