Housed within the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, the Biochemistry and Genetics undergraduate programs were coupling research experience and academics long before it became fashionable. All BICH and GENE majors are required to conduct research and submit a senior thesis. Our BS in Biochemistry is recognized and accredited by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) for upholding the highest standards of quality and innovation in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology education.
Initially, I didn’t really know what was involved with biochemistry and its role in medicine, but after freshman year, I learned how Biochemistry draws information and techniques from different disciplines across basic science such as chemistry, biology, and physics and integrates them into one subject. I enjoy the atmosphere of the Biochemistry and Genetics department because of the sense of collaboration and teamwork between students. The staff is always supportive and eager to help us understand the information and serve as mentors for us by answering any questions about my future and career choice. Whenever I’m not in lab, I am hanging out with friends or participating in Tradition based organizations. I also love to stay active and enjoy time outside.
