BS in Biochemistry
Biochemistry: Learn what keeps life going
The Bachelor of Science in biochemistry degree program at Trine University will take you on an exploration of the chemical processes within and related to living organisms. It is designed to provide a broad and deep foundation in biological and chemical concepts with plenty of research-based projects.
The degree: Strengthen your science
The Bachelor of Science in biochemistry degree is designed to be a thorough, intensive investigation of the world of science that ensures you will be well-prepared to take the next step after college.
The experience: Math, science and research
You’ll take a wide variety of math, chemistry and biology courses and learn a plethora of laboratory techniques. As you head toward graduation, you’ll have the opportunity to complete independent undergraduate research, which is an excellent opportunity to showcase your skills in the field.
The result: Career-ready or advanced degree
You will be well-qualified when you graduate to work in the fields of pure chemistry, pure biology or biochemistry. You could be researching DNA, cellular-level processes or how genetic traits are passed down through generations, or looking at new drugs or chemicals in manufacturing or the military, and how they interact with systems in the body.
Alternatively, students interested in biochemistry are often interested in pursuing advanced degrees in the health sciences. The major is an ideal avenue for students:
- Planning careers in research, teaching or in a life/health science profession (medicine, pharmacy, dentistry)
- Interested in medical, dental or veterinary school
- Wanting to work in a pharmaceutical firm
- Planning to pursue a Ph.D.
Members of the Class of 2020 were able to complete undergraduate research projects through the Rinker-Ross School of Health Sciences. See projects by Biochemistry, Biology and Chemistry students.
