About

The Bachelor of Arts degree in Biochemistry at Ferris State University provides a core of chemistry courses that includes organic, inorganic, physical chemistry, and biochemistry.

Overview

These courses take the student through the atomic and molecular nature of matter and ultimately focus on the behaviors of matter in living systems. 

The chemistry is supported by solid coursework in mathematics, physics and biology. It stresses breadth with fewer required chemistry courses than a Bachelor of Science degree but good scientists also need to be exposed to the arts, the social sciences, and humanities. 

Biochemistry students at Ferris State University should have a particular interest in and aptitude for science, especially as it pertains to living systems, and a desire to explore the connections with other fields of knowledge. Advanced students may participate in independent study and undergraduate research projects.

Career

In these days of rapid advances in the biosciences-from genetically engineered agricultural products to artificial photosynthesis to DNA fingerprinting-there are few careers that have no connection to chemistry and biochemistry. A BA in Biochemistry can prepare a student for a number of professional schools including medical, dental, veterinarian, even law school. Biochemists are often employed as research assistants in industry, government, education and health service. 

It can also be a very useful degree for individuals who are considering careers in interdisciplinary fields, for example, marketing new technologies, technical writing/communication, forensic analysis and so on. A major in biochemistry provides an education in a dynamic field with applications to suit a wide variety of personal career goals.
