Course Information

Biochemistry is the chemistry of living systems. Biochemists are scientists who seek to explain how “lifeless” molecules work together to make “living” organisms.

Why Choose Biochemistry?

Biochemistry is a unique discipline that combines chemistry and biology. In this major you will be introduced to biological molecules and learn why they are essential for life. Biochemists study biological molecules and the chemistry that defines a living organism. You will learn to understand the biochemistry of living through coursework and hands-on laboratory components.


Unlike what you may find at a large research institution, the biochemistry faculty at Manhattan College give each student personal attention and are focused on teaching undergraduate students exclusively. Our faculty are here because they are great teachers and because they love to teach. As a biochemistry major, your courses will be taught by faculty members, never graduate students. And our small class sizes mean that you will really get to know your professors and they will get to know you, and how to best help you succeed.

Undergraduate Research

As an undergraduate student, you will have the opportunity to do hands-on research directly with a faculty member, an experience that students at larger institutions may not have until graduate school.

Recent research projects include:

  • Water remediation and applications of green synthetic technologies
  • Environmentally friendly synthesis of bio-fuels
  • Synthetic biology and unnatural amino acids
  • Biochemistry of DNA replication and repair

What Will You Learn?

Coursework includes an in-depth study of general chemistry, physical chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry and biology. Through your research and classes, you will learn to:

  • design and conduct experiments
  • analyze and interpret data
  • understand the implication of scientific discoveries and their impact on humanity
  • think analytically and independently
  • understand your professional and ethical responsibilities as a scientist
