The biochemistry major is particularly suited to students who plan to go on to graduate training in biochemical and molecular research or medical school. Hamline majors complete introductory coursework in biology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics, and then further their studies with upper-level elective courses in related areas.
The biochemistry major consists of 17 courses plus a seminar and an independent research project.
One from the following list of courses:
Choose one additional course from the list above or from one of the following:
Biochemistry students must complete either three semesters of BIOL 5950: Biology Seminar and one semester of BIOL 5951: Biology Seminar Presentation, or two semesters each (fall and spring of the same year) of CHEM 5960: Research Techniques and CHEM 5961: Research Techniques II.
BIOC 5970: Independent Study or BIOC 4010: Collaborative Research or written documentation of an appropriate independent research project from the program directors.
BIOC, BIOL, and CHEM courses listed above count as inside the major and do not qualify for breadth of study. BIOL and CHEM courses taken as preparation or electives do count for breadth of study.
