Chemistry Degrees

Biochemists explore the processes of life at the molecular level. You will examine how cell components work together and communicate with each other, giving you strong foundations in disciplines such as genetics, forensics, microbiology, plant science and medicine. A degree in biochemistry is often used as an entry point into professional schools such a medicine, pharmacology and dentistry.

Biochemists work in many places and industries including hospitals, universities, agriculture, food, education, cosmetics, forensic crime research, drug discovery and development.
