After I Graduate

Undergraduate Alumni

The biochemistry program offered everything I wanted (solid foundations not only in biology/chemistry but also calculus, genetics, etc) to help me be more well-rounded. My research experience was some of the best few years of my life! I had amazing mentors and made lifelong friends. I learned so much and it prepared me immensely for graduate school and life in general. I still miss it & TAMU so much!

Kristin Graham ’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
