What You'll Learn as an Applied Biochemistry Major.

This new major was designed by our faculty to meet the growing demand from prospective students, and the need for graduates in this area. You will learn how to use the application of biochemistry to solve practical problems in fields such as medicine, agriculture, and industry. While biochemistry is the study of the chemical processes and substances in living organisms, you will learn how to apply this knowledge to solve practical problems.
