• Biochemistry at Hamline

    Students majoring in Biochemistry receive the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree upon graduation. The Biochemistry Major combines the study of chemistry with the bio-molecular sciences, and is particularly suited to students who plan to go on to graduate training in biochemical and molecular research or medical school. 

    Students majoring in biochemistry go on to pursue careers in academic or industrial research, medicine, business, and government. 

    Hamline majors complete introductory coursework in biology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics, and then further their studies with upper-level elective courses in these areas. All biochemistry majors are required to complete an independent research project, and to participate in either the Biology or Chemistry seminar program.

    Biochemistry program directors: Betsy Martinez-Vaz, Biology Department, and Larry Masterson, Chemistry Department.
