Biochemistry | Mount St. Joseph University
Biochemistry signs.

Biochemistry majors take select chemistry and biology courses that apply the fundamentals of chemistry to living systems.

The Biochemistry major, offered in the Department of Chemistry and Physical Science, provides students a solid grounding in chemistry and biology, and is supported by mathematics and physics courses.

Biochemistry is a great choice for students planning a career in the biochemical or pharmaceutical industries, or planning continued studies in medicine, dentistry or related fields.

Career Potential:

Students graduating with a biochemistry degree have multiple career options. Some may choose to continue in graduate programs in either biochemistry or health care fields such as PA (physician’s assistant), medicine, physical therapy, or pharmacy. Students may also enter the workforce as a researcher in a biochemistry facility.

Hands-On Learning:

Under the guidance of faculty, biochemistry students at the Mount can participate in chemistry resesarch as part of a research group. Many research students are co-authors on published chemistry research papers while others present their work at regional professional meetings.

Our extensive cooperative education opportunities provide real-life experiences in industrial settings and research labs in greater Cincinnati. These co-op positions have often led to full-time positions for our students.
