Do you love chemistry? Do you go all soft and squishy in your biology class? Do you wish you could somehow take them both at once? (Are you out of your mind?) Well, you can if you major in Biochemistry.

Biochemistry majors study the chemistry of living things—the molecular compounds, substances, and physiology that make them tick. You can think of it as teeny biology. Biochemists study the minute, discrete characteristics of every organism and biological process. You’ll be the envy of pre-med majors everywhere because since you’ll probably like it, you will actually understand organic chemistry. This major is also good preparation if you are considering medical school as a possibility.

Remember that most college science classes require extensive lab time. Be prepared to do more bonding with your lab partner than with your roommate or significant other. (Unless, of course, your lab partner is your roommate or significant other.)


  • Biochemistry I-II

  • Calculus I-II

  • General Biology I-II

  • General Chemistry I-II

  • Microbiology

  • Organic Chemistry I-II

  • Physics I-II


Do we even need to say it? Take chemistry and biology. Advanced math and physics are usually a part of the Biochemistry curriculum as well, so classes in these areas will help.
