BS Program in Biochemistry
An interdepartmental BS biochemistry major is offered in the College of Arts and Sciences. The BS in biochemistry degree is managed by an interdepartmental committee composed of biochemists, bioorganic chemists, and molecular/cellular biologists. The committee administers the degree, monitors the academic program, provides research possibilities, and advises student majors. The director of the program is currently Linda J. Lowe-Krentz. Faculty in both Biological Sciences (Behe, Kuchka, Lowe-Krentz, Lang, and Iovine) and Chemistry (Glover, Pires, Thévenin) serve as advisors.
