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 you couldn’t 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.
