A degree in Biochemistry prepares students interested in working in the fast-growing biotechnology field; in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries; in research, product development, marketing, and sales; and in such related fields as teaching. For students who wish to pursue graduate study in the sciences or enter professional schools (medicine, dentistry, optometry, pharmacy), a BS degree in Biochemistry is viewed quite favorably by admissions committees.
