The total credits of the
major requirements are 69-72. The core curriculum and mission seminars require
38-52 credits. A total of 128 credits, 43 of which need to be at the 300/400
level, are required to graduate. Transfer course, waivers and/or substitutions,
and prerequisite courses could modify these credit totals.
students interested in graduate work in biochemistry should follow the
recommendations of the American Chemical Society which requires specifically
MATH 220, 221, and 320; PHYS 260 and 261; and also either CHEM 430 or 362.
a biochemistry major program intrinsically contains significant work in both
biology and chemistry, declared minors in biology and chemistry will not be

same as the above biochemistry major with the additional major requirements of
CHEM 350, 362, 430 or 470.
