Biological Chemistry Biological chemistry encompasses the study of the form and function of the proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, and nucleic acids found in living organisms. Traditionally, biological chemistry has been an interdisciplinary field, drawing on techniques and expertise from physics, medicine, biology, and chemistry. The required courses for the major give a student a solid foundation in basic science, while the array of elective courses allows wide latitude in pursuing an area of individual interest. The thesis provides a final integrating experience. Graduate Schools -Bates Biological Chemistry Department.

Biochemistry majors may also find relevant work in private industry, pharmaceutical companies, health organizations, biotechnology firms, and government agencies. In addition to these careers, students with bachelor degrees in biochemistry often go on to pursue professional degrees relating to science, medicine, and public health. Science teachers are in high demand, which makes teaching in private and independent schools a popular option.
