Overview

The Biochemistry - ASBMB from Colorado State University is composed of a “core” set of courses comprised of 24 credits of primarily upper division coursework (22/24 credits are 400 level), along with a total of 9 “bioscience elective” credits selected from a list provided by the department. This option gives the student 13 “free elective” credits, which they can use to pursue a minor, a double major, and/or other academic interests. 

Thus, this concentration is designed to provide a broad background in biochemistry and can be tailored to meet the individual needs of specific students. 

Students who graduate from this program can state on their resume that they graduated from an “ASBMB program.” If desired, students can take a 1-hour ASBMB exam during the spring semester of their senior year. Students who pass the exam will additionally receive degree certification from ASBMB. Accreditation (and certification) by ASBMB confirms that our undergraduate degree program meets very high standards, and thus will enhance the credentials of our graduating seniors.
