Suffolk’s Biochemistry majors offers an intensive, laboratory-based curriculum paired with unparalleled opportunities for independent research in one of the world’s most scientifically advanced cities. Our faculty will connect you with Boston’s premier labs and medical schools and the internships they offer.

About

The program is laboratory focused, and most labs contain 12 or fewer students, ensuring personal attention. Like Chemistry, Suffolk’s Biochemistry program follows a coursework sequence endorsed by the American Chemical Society, which guarantees that your degree will be respected as you go on to graduate and professional work.

Importantly, the biochemistry major positions you particularly well for careers in rapidly developing fields. Many students go on to lucrative, high-demand careers as allied health workers—the essential medical personnel like nurse practitioners, physician’s assistants, and paramedics. Other students go on to graduate school in toxicology and pharmacology. The biochemistry major also lays the ideal foundation for application to medical school.
