About

Biochemists investigate how molecular structure determines biological function, how molecules recognize each other and how the dynamic chemical changes that occur inside cells are orchestrated. This Biochemistry program is offered by The Ohio State University.

Overview

Biochemists look at how living organisms function at the molecular level, studying such subjects as the structure of enzymes, protein folding, the transfer of genetic information or photosynthesis. 

Program objectives

Students who complete the Biochemistry program from The Ohio State University will be prepared to:

  • Understand the relationship between biochemistry and broader areas of science in a historical context
  • Apply chemical, mathematical and physical concepts to describe biological processes
  • Apply biochemical concepts to explain basic cellular processes
  • Use scientifically valid reasoning to investigate and articulate how biochemical knowledge is acquired

Possible careers

Examples of jobs available to biochemistry majors upon graduation include biochemist, medical or pharmaceutical lab technician, food scientist, or industrial sales representative. A large portion of the students who complete the biochemistry major go to professional school to pursue advanced degrees in fields such as medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, optometry or veterinary medicine.

Programme Structure

Course Overview:

  • The biochemistry major at Ohio State offers excellent training in the chemical basis of life and insight into the chemistry of living systems.
  • The biochemistry major consists of a minimum of 12 upper-level courses in biochemistry, molecular genetics, organic and physical chemistry, and mathematics. 
  • Several science and mathematics courses are taken in support of the degree. These courses provide a strong foundation in all the scientific disciplines upon which biochemistry is built. All biochemistry majors take calculus, one year of general chemistry, one year of physics and one year of introductory biology. These basic math and science requirements of the biochemistry major are nearly identical to the requirements of many other science-based disciplines and can help fulfill prerequisites for pre-medicine, pre-optometry, pre-dentistry and pre-veterinary medicine.
