Many of the most basic steps of life, from conception to death, are guided by chemical processes. Are you interested in fields such as genetics, microbiology, physiology, immunology, or other biological disciplines? Knowledge of biochemistry is essential to understanding each of these.
If you’re interested in careers involving chemistry or biology, or want to pursue a career in medicine, knowledge of biochemistry is an asset. In addition to helping you prepare for graduate studies in several fields, biochemistry graduates can work for laboratories and pharmaceutical or biotechnology companies.
Studying biochemistry at Manhattanville College gives you access to hands-on experiences that you could not dream of getting at a larger institution. Team up with faculty members to work on research projects – and complete your own.
That kind of work will put you in a position to excel at graduate studies in biochemistry, as well as such fields as genetics, microbiology, physiology, immunology, and other biological and chemical fields. In addition, the biochemistry makes a good major for pre-med students, as it gives you a clearer understanding of the medical sciences.
Manhattanville offers a BS and a BA in Biochemistry to allow students to tailor their major to their particular career goals.
Students who graduate with a major in Biochemistry are expected to:
Exhibit quantitative reasoning and analysis abilities and problem-solving skills by choosing appropriate techniques or procedures for a given problem.
Demonstrate mastery of scientific writing skills by preparing laboratory reports and research papers that follow the guidelines of scientific literature.
Demonstrate interdisciplinary knowledge by completing course requirements and electives in Biology and Chemistry
Manhattanville offers many routes for students seeking to enter health professional schools in such areas as medicine, dentistry, optometry, physician assistant, veterinary medicine, pharmacy, physical therapy, and other health-related fields.
