Two biochemistry students working in a lab

An outline of how the next four years will go here in Biochemistry. 

You can find a sample biochemistry coursework schedule below. The bolded classes are courses that you can move around to other semesters, so don’t stress if you can’t fit them exactly where they are listed on the sample schedule.

Did you know that approximately one-third of Biochemistry students pursue a health professions program after graduation? If you are planning to go to medical, pharmacy, dental, vet, or another health profession program after you earn your biochemistry degree, please let a biochemistry advisor know. The biochemistry major fulfills most requirements for health profession programs, and with the help from your advisor, you can incorporate the other requirements into your academic plan.

If you want to explore an option that is not listed on this webpage, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with a Biochemistry advisor. For double major options, you will need to find and communicate with an advisor in the department that corresponds to your second major.

For questions about our sample schedules or which classes best align with your academic and career goals, reach out to a peer mentor or one of our academic advisors: Amy Rasor and Jen Stewart.
