Degree Requirements: Major in Biochemistry
The Biochemistry major is intended for those with an interest in the chemistry of living systems.
Requirements: Chemistry 1 or 11, 2 or 12, 31, 42 or 43, 51/53, 52/54, 171 and 172; Biology 13, 41, 50 (or Biology 54 or Chemical and Biological Engineering 163), and 105. The Biochemistry major requires Chem31 (Physical Chemistry), which has Math 34 and Phys 2 as prerequisites. Thus, the timing for completion of Math 32, Math 34, Phys 1 and Phys 2 (or their equivalents, such as AP credit) is flexible, but must be completed in the first three years.
Suggested Course Sequences for Biochemistry Majors
*The Bio 50 requirement can be fulfilled with Bio 50, Bio 54, ChBE 163, or a graded independent research course. Bio 50 will be offered Spring semester in academic year 2018-2019, and Fall semester academic year 2019-2020 and thereafter. Bio 54 will be offered Fall semester in academic year 2018-2019, and Spring semester academic year 2019-2020 and thereafter. ChBE 163 is a summer course. To fulfill the Bio 50 requirement, independent research must 1) include a graded research-for-credit course such as Bio193 and Chem82 (but not Chem81), 2) involve molecular or cellular biology, and 3) be pre-approved. For questions about pre-approval, please email Prof. Kritzer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
