Overview

In addition to the rigorous nature of our courses, we provide students with the opportunity to get involved in hands-on, cutting edge research with our faculty. Most schools do not allow students to participate in research until their junior year; however, at Eastern Nazarene College, freshmen and sophomores are afforded this opportunity as well. In addition to conducting research with faculty, students are involved in independent projects that encourage them to venture outside of their comfort zones and think like scientists. 

This learning methodology is carried through into their senior year when they conduct and present a senior research project for the community. Upon graduation, many students either continue their studies in graduate school or apply to medical or pharmacy school.

Career Paths

A degree in biochemistry prepares students for a career in industry or academia. Examples include the pharmaceutical, polymer, and nanomaterials industries. The major is also designed to prepare students for medical school. 

Over the past 15 years, majors in chemistry and biochemistry have had a 100% acceptance rate into graduate school, including the University of Massachusetts, Case Western University, Temple University, Indiana University, University of New Hampshire, Emory University, University of Connecticut, Georgia Tech, and University of Pittsburgh. Other students are employed with companies like Genzyme, the world’s third-largest biotechnology firm.
