Overview

  • Laboratories are housed in both Richardson Hall and Science Hall. Students may selectively take one or two courses as non-degree students, to increase their professional competence in a particular area of Chemistry or Biochemistry, or may elect to enroll in one of the Master of Science programs, as outlined below.
  • The Biochemistry concentration provides a flexible program of study for those students who wish to emphasize Biochemistry and related areas in their Master's degree. Those working in research in the pharmaceutical industry or interested in doing so, and individuals interested in pursuing an M.D. or a Ph.D. in Biochemistry or a related area would benefit from this program. It is most suited to students with an undergraduate degree in Biochemistry but is also suitable for students with a major in Chemistry who wish to broaden their knowledge in Biochemistry. As indicated above, students with other backgrounds can also be accommodated.
