Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at California Lutheran University serves students whose end goal is a bachelor of science degree, as well as those seeking entry into medical or graduate school.


Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at California Lutheran University emphasizes genomics and bioinformatics—two important methods that you will use as you design and carry out your own experiments. During the first two years of study, you will focus on basic concepts and theories. Then, during the next two years, you will apply these concepts and principles to the broader study of biotechnology. Throughout, you will have the opportunity to conduct original research with faculty advisors and present your findings at research conferences.

Year-round research opportunities

You will also be encouraged to apply for summer research work. Students who have done so have garnered recognition through California Heart Association grants, National Institutes of Health and National Science Foundation summer research posts, and internships at local biotechnology firms such as Amgen and Baxter—among the nation's top biopharmaceutical corporations.

Your Future

Many of our biochemistry majors are accepted into medical, dental, pharmaceutical, and graduate schools throughout the United States.

As part of a growing field, you will have many career possibilities. You could work on the frontiers of science in the heart of America's biotechnology industry, practice medicine, participate in cutting-edge research, unlock the secrets of recombinant DNA, or break new ground in genomics and proteomics.
