Biochemistry Major at Westminster College 

For Biochemistry major requirements, please refer to the academic catalog.

Major Highlights

The Departments of Biology and Chemistry offer an interdisciplinary major program of study leading to a Bachelor of Arts in Biochemistry. The major program is structured into two tracks, biological emphasis and chemical emphasis, to allow the student to pursue a more advanced study of biochemistry to fulfill their particular interests and professional goals. Both tracks require introductory biology and chemistry courses which emphasize  fundamental concepts and give students a clear insight into the underlying biological and chemical principles. The Biodiversity, Biological Processes and General Chemistry courses fulfill the general degree requirements for a course in laboratory science as well as serving as foundation courses for biochemistry students.
