Biochemistry

What is Biochemistry?

Biochemistry takes the practices of general chemistry one step further by focusing on the chemical makeup of, and reactions within, living things. By specializing in the chemical nature of living systems, biochemists develop skills that have broad applications within a variety of industries.

 

What makes Walsh's Biochemistry major unique?

• Renowned Faculty. Our instructors have significant experience within the chemistry field.
