Schreiner University offers courses leading to a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree and a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree with a major in Biochemistry. The Biochemistry program is committed to the liberal arts tradition with emphasis upon biochemistry as an area of free inquiry. Students are not expected simply to master current biochemistry knowledge. Rather, they are encouraged to understand biochemistry as a dynamic body of knowledge. Methods of producing new knowledge and using concepts to further understanding are two major goals of the program.
Biochemistry is a multidisciplinary major. A student with BA degree in Biochemistry will meet all the requirements for medical, dental, veterinary and pharmacy schools. Those students wishing to pursue graduate studies in biochemistry are encouraged to follow the BS degree plan. The Biochemistry program includes courses and experiences that will give the student a wide variety of laboratory techniques that are essential for further investigations either in education or industry.
