Undergraduate Program Advising

The Undergraduate Student Advising Guide details the programs and coursework required as part of the different concentrations within the Biochemistry Major.

Pre-Medicine Concentration

medicineBiochemistry is an excellent preparation for medical school. Course work is designed to prepare students for the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT), medical school classes, and to meet medical school entrance requirements.

Pre-Pharmacy Concentration

pharmacyPharmacy school typically requires only two to three years of college work for entry. However, four-year undergraduate programs can be of benefit to students and Biochemistry graduates have been very successful in Pharmacy School and perform well on the Pharmacy College Admissions Test.

Pre-Optometry Concentration

optometryBiochemistry is an excellent preparation for optometry school. This concentration prepares students for the Optometry Admissions Test, optometry school classes, and to meet optometry school requirements.

Pre-Veterinary Medicine Concentration

veterinaryBiochemistry is an excellent preparation for veterinary medical school. Curricula is designed to prepare graduates for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or Veterinary College Admissions Test, veterinary medical school classes, and to meet veterinary medical school entrance requirements. A three year program (3+1) is also offered in the department. The aim of this curriculum is to allow a student to matriculate through the department of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Entomology and Plant Pathology for three years and then proceed into the College of Veterinary Medicine under their early admissions policy. Successful completion of the courses taken during the first year in Veterinary Medicine will satisfy the Department's requirements for technical electives and allow the University to grant the student a B.S. in Biochemistry after this period.

Pre-MBA Concentration

MBAThis concentration provides the student with a B.S. in Biochemistry incorporating a strong background in science while preparing the student for immediate entry into a graduate program leading to an advanced business degree (either the Master of Business Administration or the Master of Agribusiness Management). Either program can be completed in a minimum of three semesters. Students thus educated may enter into management level positions in the biotech or agribusiness industry.
