Biochemistry Major

Suffolk University's biochemistry program is laboratory-focused. And since most of our labs contain 12 or fewer students, you're sure to enjoy your professors' personal attention.

Like chemistry, our biochemistry program follows a coursework sequence endorsed by the American Chemical Society, guaranteeing that your degree will be respected as you go on to graduate and professional work.

Suffolk's biochemistry major positions you particularly well for careers in rapidly developing fields. Many students go on to lucrative, high-demand careers as allied health workers—the essential medical personnel like nurse practitioners, physician’s assistants, and paramedics. Others are accepted into graduate programs in toxicology and pharmacology. Biochemistry also lays the ideal foundation for medical school.
