What will I learn?

Biochemists are curious about how and why biological processes happen, and they research answers right down to the molecular level. During the course of your studies, much of your learning will occur while actively working on problems in class, during tutorials, and in the laboratory. This degree will provide you with an understanding of the theory and practical use of current techniques used in biochemistry research, and will give you an understanding of newly evolving fields such as bioinformatics and functional proteomics.

Courses you'll take:

Biochemistry of Life Processes, Linear Methods I, Mechanics, University Calculus I, ​Energy Flow in Biological Systems

Career opportunities

Biochemists have global opportunities to work in areas such as biotechnology, toxicology, clinical chemistry, animal science, and more. A degree in Biochemistry can also be used as a stepping-stone to graduate studies or a professional degree such as law, medicine, veterinary medicine, or architecture.
