B.A. in Biochemistry
Minor in Biochemistry
B.S IN BIOCHEMISTRY
Forty-nine chemistry credits. Students in this program must maintain a 2.8 GPA in the major by the end of the fourth semester. Students who do not maintain this GPA are advised not to continue in the biochemistry major. The following chemistry courses are required: Chemistry 101, 102, 302, 309, 310, 311, 319, 320, 323, 324, 335, 433, 434, 436, 452, 460, 461; BIOL 111, 112, 113, 114 and two upper level courses with a lab component. A minimum grade of "C" in any chemistry or biology course is necessary for credit toward the major. Majors may not elect to take Chemistry 100, 105, or 106. Students pursuing the B.S. degree in biochemistry may, through the judicious choice of electives comply with the American Chemical Society requirements for certification.
Cognate Requirements: Seventeen credits consisting of MATH 103,104, and 211, and
B.A. IN BIOCHEMISTRY
Thirty-Four credits. Students in this program must successfully complete the following courses with a minimum grade of "C": Chemistry 101-102, 319-320, 323-324 and Biology 111-112, 113-114. They will then be permitted to enroll in the following required courses: Chemistry 302, 309, 433, 434, and 436.
Cognate Requirements: Seventeen credits consisting of MATH 103-104, PHYS 107-108.
MINOR IN BIOCHEMISTRY
Students should complete 18 credits in the department of Chemistry and Biochemistry for the minor. These credits must include the following courses: CHEM 433, 434, 436. A student may not count the same credits towards minors in both Chemistry and Biochemistry.
Grade Requirements: Majors must attain a minimum grade of "C" in all required Chemistry or Biology courses.
