Program Overview

The biochemistry major is an excellent option for those students who wish to have a strong foundation in an interdisciplinary science.

Today, many new jobs are being created in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries that demand the breadth and flexibility available with a biochemistry background.

Biochemistry uniquely examines the cellular and sub-cellular levels of life through the "eyes" of molecular chemical reactions, structures, and energetics. In other words, life is examined at its most fundamental physical level. This major provides a strong background in both chemistry and biology with additional support from physics and mathematics.

Career Options
Biochemistry majors might pursue careers as an agricultural researcher, biological scientist, clinical laboratory technologist, food scientist, forensic scientist, medical scientist, pharmacist, science technician.

Taking Classes
This residential, four-year program is offered on our Winona Campus, with daytime classes and a full student life experience.
