Because Biochemistry builds on the fundamentals of both biology and chemistry, students who major in biochemistry at the Smith College begin by taking introductory courses in both of these fields. 


Biochemistry at the Smith College follows in either your second or third year, along with additional courses in cell biology, physiology, molecular biology and physical chemistry. More specialized courses can be selected according to students' individual interests.

All graduating biochemistry majors should be able to:

  • Summarize, explain and critically evaluate published scientific literature. This includes being able to identify the “big picture” ideas, what was known in the field prior to the work being described, and what new information the experiments contribute to the field.
  • Write and orally present biochemical content clearly.
  • Interpret and analyze data, employing rigorous quantitative skills when necessary.
  • Describe the process of scientific research. Be able to recognize and implement critical elements of experimental design (such as proper control experiments), recognize what conclusions can (and cannot) be reasonably be drawn from a given set of experimental results, and understand how to conduct research responsibly.
  • Locate and use valid, peer-reviewed sources when doing research.
