Chemistry: College preparatory high school chemistry or the successful completion of a placement test.
Math: Three years of college preparatory high school mathematics including functions.
Students who successfully complete the biochemistry major will be able to:
- demonstrate foundational knowledge of scientific theories and competence in laboratory techniques.
- generate scientific data using appropriate and ethical disciplinary protocols and laboratory techniques, including proper use of equipment, instruments and materials.
- analyze and interpret scientific data based on sound scientific reasoning.
- assess scientific questions, and design methods to answer them.
- research, understand and cite scientific literature.
- describe scientific results using clear, concise language, and observe technical conventions in written and oral reports.
