You're passionate about improving life for all, so join those who are doing that. You'll have a surplus of opportunities to serve, work and lead within our biochemistry program

Our graduates are in demand in every facet of chemistry and biochemistry. And that includes the medical, industrial, governmental, educational and nonprofit sectors. By the way, more than 50 percent of our biochemistry graduates have earned doctorate degrees. So get started with us — choose the degree path that is right for you. Our experienced faculty will cultivate you. The success of our graduates proves that.

There's no capstone required for our biochemistry majors. But most of our students take part in undergraduate research at Lipscomb, at major research universities — or both. It's common for graduates of both of our biochemistry degrees to get into recognized research universities and medical schools across the U.S. Whatever your goals are, we'll help you get there.

Program Foundations
Applied Biochemistry
We developed our applied biochemistry curriculum to give you exactly what you need to excel. Our dedicated faculty will prepare you for admission to competitive health-related professional schools — without advanced mathematics. Many of our applied biochemistry graduates are flourishing medical doctors, dentists, pharmacists or physician assistants. Others have found success in industry or graduate study within chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology or microbiology.

Biochemistry
Earning your biochemistry degree (non-applied) also provides an excellent pathway for entering the life sciences, whatever emphasis you choose. You'll gain vital biochemistry knowledge that will help you prepare for the Medical College Admissions Test and for medical school.
