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.
In order to complete the online biochemistry degree, the students must complete organic chemistry and biochemistry lab courses in person. The in-person lab courses provide the students with unique and invaluable hands-on laboratory experiences. Many students use these lab experiences to position themselves as strong candidates for graduate programs in the sciences or health professions, in particular for medical, physician assistant, dental and pharmacy schools.
The School of Molecular Sciences at ASU has created an optional in-person accelerated laboratory for online students. This new, innovative course gives online students the same hands-on experience and benefits that on-campus students receive.
ASU’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences takes a transdisciplinary approach to education with a vast spectrum of degrees in the social sciences, natural sciences and humanities. We inspire students to be socially aware, critical thinkers and global citizens.
