Biochemistry BS

Student Learning Outcomes

  1. Students at the introductory level of biology and chemistry will demonstrate a basic understanding of biological and chemical concepts as well as quantitative problem solving.

  2. Students who major in biochemistry will have gained sufficient knowledge and skills in the classroom and laboratory to be successful in their future studies (particularly in CHEM 440/442 and 3XX/4XX level biology courses).

  3. Students will be able to locate the biochemical literature, read it, think about it, question it and understand it, and communicate their ideas about it both in writing and orally to their peers.

  4. Students will have an adequate understanding across the general core areas of chemistry (inorganic, organic, physical, and analytical) and biology (cell biology, molecular biology, genetics, organismal biology, population biology, evolution, and ecology).
