Online Program Details

As a biochemistry major you will learn about the chemical processes of living organisms. Discoveries of new drugs, the recognition and control of new pathogens, development of new catalysts for energy transformation, the production of new materials, and solutions to problems in food production and environmental remediation all depend upon a thorough grounding in this area.

The online program builds critical thinking and interdisciplinary, scientific problem-solving, that will prepare you to enter numerous scientific careers in chemical, pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, government, healthcare, research and teaching. The program also prepares you as a competitive applicant to graduate schools in biochemistry and related sciences, and also to medical, dental or pharmacy schools.

The online biochemistry degree offers real on-ground lab experience and course credits. This unique opportunity in an online science degree provides a significant benefit for medical school applicants who may require on-ground credits, or who seek hands-on lab experience in support of a competitive medical, dental or pharmacy school application.

Faculty and School Accolades:

The Biochemistry BS degree is offered through the School of Molecular Sciences at ASU, which ranks highly in research visibility. In a Thompson Reuters report the School was #6 in the US and the School consistently ranks in the top 10 for publications in the most prestigious journals Science and Nature over the last decade.
