Biological Chemistry

This is a chemistry degree with a solid base in biology which is designed specifically to prepare students for further specialization in the chemistry of biological systems but also serves as an appropriate background for graduate studies in any area of chemistry. The degree will also serve those students who wish to enter health related careers such as medicine and those who wish to pursue other chemistry related careers. The degree also provides two teachable subjects for students interested in teaching at the intermediate and secondary school levels.
