The Biochemistry major integrates chemistry and cell/molecular biology requiring the student to synthesize information from diverse topics contributing to Judson University’s mission to enable students to acquire ideas and concepts that sharpen their insights.
Many of our biochemistry majors pursue post-graduate studies, such as medical school. To be successful in post-graduate work, students need the ability to integrate multiple scientific disciplines into their studies and learn what integrative operational science truly is. Judson University’s mission is to develop skills appropriate to our student’s career goals. By integrating the knowledge and skills of chemistry and biological disciplines, students will also be able to apply them toward understanding the function of biochemical systems within organisms.
Why Biochemistry at Judson?
The Biochemistry major offers small class sizes, individual attention from experienced faculty, and laboratory experiences that develop critical skills in areas such as chromatography, spectroscopy, and kinetic measurements.
Biochemistry majors have the opportunity to work as lab assistants and be mentored in independent research projects. Biochemistry majors also present at least one literature research project on a current topic in the science world.
