Biochemistry at Westminster College

For requirements, please visit the course 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.
