Biochemistry, B.S.

Biochemistry is the best of both worlds! It allows a student to combine knowledge of both chemistry and biology of life processes at the molecular level.

At MTSU you'll build a strong background in the traditional areas of chemistry that overlap with molecular biology — organic and biochemistry, along with the more quantitative areas of analytical, and physical chemistry. A degree in biochemistry prepares students to think critically and creatively as effective problem solvers. Graduates can continue on to graduate or professional school or find immediate employment in a wide variety of high-demand fields, including health professions (e.g. medical, dental, pharmacy), pharmaceutical or biotechnology industry; or biomedical testing.

MTSU’s B.S. in Biochemistry is accredited by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB).

MTSU's newest recipient of a prestigious Fulbright scholarship, recent graduate Daniel Gouger is taking his bachelor's degree in biochemistry (and one in Spanish) and spending the next year studying molecular dynamics and molecular modeling at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine in Spain. Gouger's undergraduate work, which included participation in Posters at the Capitol, charter membership in Omicron Delta Kappa Honor Society, and graduation from the Honors College, readied him for his Fulbright experience.

FACULTY

INFORMATION

The Biochemistry program allows a student to combine knowledge of both biology and chemistry to explain life processes in terms of chemical reactions with living cells. A Biochemistry degree can not only prepare students for professional careers as chemists; it may also serve as the basis for work in areas outside pure chemistry, such as materials science, medicine and other health-related fields, nutrition, pharmacology, patent law, business, and environmental science, to name a few.
