Students interested in majoring in Biochemistry should speak with a faculty member in the Biology or Chemistry departments early in their undergraduate career. Faculty will help lay out a four-year plan that includes required courses, elective courses, opportunities for off-campus study, and possible internships. Early consultation is important to sequencing of several courses so that off-campus study remains an option. In general, students should take CHEM 111 in their first semester, and CHEM 221 and BIOL 112 in their second semester.
