Biochemistry & Biotechnology Bachelor of Science

This B.S. degree in Biochemistry & Biotechnology is offered in cooperation with the Department of Biology and the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. Students receive solid foundations in both chemistry and biology, as well as the opportunity to specialize in the rapidly growing fields of biochemistry and biotechnology. This degree program allows students to acquire the knowledge and develop the skills necessary to enter the biotechnology and life sciences workforce or to pursue further studies at the professional or graduate level.

Students must satisfy the university and college general education requirements and take a Major Field Achievement Test (MFAT) in the last semester before graduation. There is no foreign language requirement. Students are encouraged to gain undergraduate research experience in the laboratory of a faculty member of the Biochemistry & Biotechnology Program.
