Course Information

Also called “biological chemistry,” this growing field of scientific study explains how living organisms survive and thrive through their internal chemical processes. Biochemical research is one of the most successful fields at examining living processes and today is part of almost all areas of life sciences research. As a professional biochemist you’ll make valuable contributions to this vital research and set your path for career success.

Take this program if you’re fascinated by living organisms and how their biological molecules contribute to the functioning of their entire beings. Take this program if you’re fascinated by life in general and want to understand its complex scientific inner workings and play an active role in discovering more about living beings’ interconnectedness.
