Career Outlook

Although many students with a degree in biochemistry are laying the groundwork for future graduate-level work in medicine, pharma, health and science, the relative growth rate of demand for a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry is projected to be more than double the growth rate of the overall labor market for the next 10 years. From health and medical research to chemical and physical sciences, a biochemistry degree can lead to interesting careers and opportunities as medical technologists, chemists, researchers, analysts and scientists. Nearly half of all job listing in this field are for candidates with 0-2 years of experience, indicating a strong demand for recent graduates.
