About

In the Biochemistry program of Capital University, you'll gain a molecular understanding of biological systems, preparing you for a career in pharmaceutical discovery, health care, biotechnology, modern agriculture and more.

Overview

What you'll learn

During your first year in the Biochemistry program of Capital University, you'll take introductory courses in biology and chemistry, followed by organic chemistry, genetics and analytical chemistry in the sophomore year. You'll also begin a broad-based program of general education in the liberal arts tradition — teaching you critical thinking, problem solving and communication skills that will prepare you to adapt to a rapidly changing job market. If you're a first-year student who's not sure of your academic interests (you're not alone), our curriculum in the first two years is designed so you can easily change majors to biology or chemistry.

Where you'll go: careers and placements

Opportunities for advances in human health care make biochemistry an exciting field of study. Pharmaceutical and biotechnology firms are major employers of graduates with a biochemistry major. This major is also excellent preparation for students interested in graduate school in biochemistry and molecular biology or health-related careers such as medicine, pharmacy and dentistry.

More than 90 percent of biochemistry majors pursue an advanced degree in graduate school or a health profession. Biochemistry students have gone on to medical school at Kentucky, veterinary school at Ohio State and Ph.D. programs at Vanderbilt, Purdue, Drexel and Ohio State. Recent graduates also are employed in scientific careers at Battelle and Nationwide Children’s Hospital. The current U.S. biotechnology workforce is 200,000 strong and is expected to grow 12 to 17 percent annually for the next five years. As a biochemistry major, you can choose from a variety of different fields, including:  

  • Biotechnology
  • Toxicology
  • Biomedical engineering
  • Pharmacology
  • Plant pathology
