Biochemistry is the study of the chemical reactions within a living organism, and therefore combines the sciences of biology and chemistry. With this degree, students are well prepared to take the MCATs to get into medical school, work in a research lab, or work in the private sector in bioscience, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and forensic crime research. Since most biochemical processes happen at the molecular level, students will learn the very detailed mechanisms of cellular biology and organic chemistry. There will most likely be lab requirements, and students could partake in lab research assignments. The bachelor’s level biochemistry degree is offered at many universities, both liberal arts and research institutions, and many students go on to graduate school to either receive a Ph.D. or an M.D.
