Overview

While chemistry is often referred to as “the central science,” the impact on human health and our understanding of the natural world is best captured by biochemistry, which looks at living systems through the lens of molecules and their interactions.

As a Biochemistry student at the Texas Christian University, you’ll have opportunities to work on faculty-directed projects to help you create new chemical knowledge on some of today’s greatest challenges.

Career Prospects

In addition to technical positions in industrial or governmental research labs, many chemistry graduates pursue advanced study in chemistry, medicine, law, journalism, and business. While some biochemistry graduates take top-entry level jobs, most grads enter medical or dental school. TCU’s best biochemistry students often enter prestigious M.D./Ph.D. programs like Duke or Stanford, with the long-term goal of doing biomedical research in a medical school setting.
