Interdisciplinary Major in Biology/Chemistry

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors & Minors A-Z

The boundary separating biology and chemistry has blurred in recent years as chemical principles are increasingly used to characterize biological processes. Jointly offered by the Biology and Chemistry Departments, this interdisciplinary major provides students with a thorough understanding of the life sciences from a molecular point of view. The curriculum offers students excellent preparation for careers in medicine and other health-related professions, as well as for careers in science related areas such as the biotechnology industry. It is also an excellent foundation for graduate studies in biochemistry, molecular, or cell biology.


Students should declare this major by the end of their freshman year. A summary of the major requirements can be found under Interdisciplinary Major in Chemistry/Biology .
