Overview

About the Bachelor of Biochemistry

Welcome to the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Oklahoma. Our mission is to serve the citizens of the State of Oklahoma and the nation through instructing our undergraduate majors, those in cognate disciplines and as part of the general education programs of the College of Arts and Sciences to understand the role of chemistry and biochemistry in the natural world, through professional training of graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, through creating and disseminating new research-based understanding of chemistry and biochemistry, through providing expert advice and consultation to educational, industrial and governmental units, and through participating in service to the university and professional communities.

We are pursuing this mission through our research activities, our instructional programs and our service contributions. Our research activities are housed in our spectacular Stephenson Life Sciences Research Center (SLSRC) on the research campus located south of OU’s main campus. 

Coupled to these highly focused courses are related changes to our graduate program that should bring the time to a doctoral degree down to an average of 4.5 years. In our undergraduate instructional programs we are redesigning the curriculum from general chemistry up to the advanced courses. 

At the core we wish all students taking chemistry to appreciate the role of chemistry in understanding nature. 

We are also committed to serving the wider community. Information on our summer academies and science-society relations can be found on our Student Life web pages.
