After I Graduate

Undergraduate Alumni

Although I was a chemistry major, I chose to do research in biochemistry because I appreciated the cutting edge projects and involved opportunities to expand my knowledge and appreciate biochemistry at a deeper level. I learned that working hard, while it isn’t everything, will set you up for success and that pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone is where you learn and grow as both a student and a person.

Katie Ferry ’18, Undergraduate Alumni

Biochemists, geneticists, and molecular biologists have been leaders in the revolution, exploring the tiny realms inside cells, understanding the development of illness, and searching for ways to improve life on Earth. Few fields are so interesting, so challenging, and so potentially rewarding. Career prospects seem bright for someone trained within molecular life sciences. And so, the greater a person’s education, the greater the potential for rewards.

What can you do with a B.S.?

Roughly, a third of our students go to graduate school, another third into medical or professional school and the final third go into industry

Value of a B.S. in biochemistry or genetics

  • A B.S. in biochemistry or genetics opens doors to graduate, medical, dental, and veterinary school as well as law and business school.
  • Our graduates are well-prepared for graduate and professional school with over 60% of our graduates being accepted into graduate school
  • A third of graduates enter the scientific industry each year
