Biochemistry

Bachelor of Science

Unleash your passion for science. 

Are you a highly analytical numbers person with an aptitude for problem-solving? Do you enjoy conducting science experiments? Regis University’s Department of Chemistry offers students a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry with the option of taking additional courses to complete ACS certification.

The biochemistry program at Regis is designed for students who are interested in an integrated chemistry and biology curriculum that brings together the study of the following: fundamental chemical principles; biophysical and structural chemistry of biomolecules with an emphasis on proteins and nucleic acids; new DNA cloning and gene modeling and computational biochemistry; and advanced topics in biology such as genetics, microbiology and immunology. These programs are designed for students who are interested in this sub-discipline of chemistry and would like to combine their biochemistry degree with either a minor or major in biology. A minor in biology is a requirement for the degree.
